Nothing Changes

Nothing Changes

A Poem by AJadeLion
"

It's even better than love. A slow burn friendship. Happy, I think.

"
There is a girl
She is careful
Gentle
Kind
Quiet
No one gets past her barriers 

There is a boy
A perfect boy
Beautiful
Smart
Brave
Funny
He loves the world

Her heart seizes when she first sees him
Him and his flawless girl
Who she will not bring herself to hurt
Or hate
So she longs from a distance

Nothing changes
One day
He tells her a joke
She laughs 
It surprises them both
Still
Nothing changes

He comes back the next day
Stays a little longer
She doesn't dare look directly at him
He comes back again
And again

Eventually they talk
Her heart beats too fast
And she stutters
But he doesn't leave
He lets her talk

It happens again
And again
He trusts her
Respects her
It stops being weird

He hands her his phone
And she freezes
They don't do this
They fly in different circles
She longs from a distance

He's the perfect boy
And she the careful girl
That never changed

She wonders how he did it
Got past the gate
Stopped her longing
Replaced it with something so much better
Became her friend

In the end though
How and why
It happened
Don't matter
It just did

Nothing changes
Everything changes

Author's Note

A different style, I haven't done much third person poetry. It's also happier than a lot of what I've done recently. I'm pretty happy with it but I want to hear what people think! I had trouble coming to a conclusion and end that I was satisfied with and I'm still iffy on that in particular.

Kindness is probably the most attractive thing to me.
Now, I'm not going to pretend that looks don't matter, yeah?
But there is something about a gentle kind heart.

That girl probably does not even understand that it was inevitable for him to approach her.
And just as he 'Slid' through her barriers and 'Unlocked' her gates,

It was she who drew him in,
her pull made him gravitate closer, and return every day.
And her light absorbed him into her like a fly on the balcony.

Thank you for a lovely poem.
