he saw her on the platform
amidst all the haste
in a moment all he wanted
was to kiss her 

they met again at a party
among all the gossip and cheers
and again he wanted to lean in
and feel his lips upon hers

he didn't forget the way she looked
or the way she smiled with her eyes
but he didn't have to courage
to kiss her until she realized

he had fallen for the girl who
rolled among the flowers
he thought she wasn't in love with him
so he couldn't kiss her goodbye

but when he couldn't take it anymore
and her actions stung like bullets
with words, he showed her what he meant
until she kissed him.
