Boy Across the Road

Boy Across the Road

A Poem by Sloan Chambers

Just off the top of my head, based after the boy I like...

There was a boy across the street from me
He was just standing there
Being all beautiful
My heart tugged at his shaggy blonde hair
And the soccer ball in his hand
His feet tapping to his earphones
The hole just under the armpit of his shirt
His eyes blue fire
Electric chair with every stare
He walked across the pebbled road
Shadowed by the church on his side of the road
I hid in the corner shadows
Turning my music down to listen to his feet
The were loud getting louder
My breath was hot steamy in the air
I sunk farther in my corner denying existence
The faulty light post displaying tan muscular legs
Why are you following me?
I'm not
        I'm just admiring
He looks away but I can still see the fire
Alluring as hell
At that moment I took off my hood
I've never seen your full face
Why not
           I thought it wasn't worthy
It's nice to look at
         So is yours
You don't talk much, do you?
       But I'd spill out my feelings to you
He moved closer
Some would say too close
but I didn't think so
He could as close as he wanted
You know your face I've been looking at it for a while
         He had been watching it
Yeah, your eyes are beautiful
Yours are too
                  Mine are an ugly grey
This is boring he smiled
his teeth white as always
It is
I said
He embraced me kissing me hard
His lips were soft
sweet like a pillow
we wrapped around each other
like weeds around a tree
The wall was cold
The ground was hard
I loved every minute of it

Ah! Thank you, you got the double lined dialogue! I really tried to make it better than it actually played out... in real life, I just looked at him. Creepy, huh? Haha, there's no creeper intended!

Ah, the way every girl's dream scenario plays out with the boy she likes. I enjoyed this very much. I got the sense that, during the 'dialogue' that every double-indented line was her thought, instead of her voice. I like the way you did that. Keep it up =)

I love music, art, and writing. There is nothing else like 'em. I grew up with really strict parents, who are all math and science. So, naturally, I'm gifted in them, but that doesn't mean I like t.. more..
