So Close But So Far

by Maia

Age Group: Teen

Back in the very beginning
when we lived in the same small town
I didn't always acknowledge that you were around
You were so quiet, dark, distanced from nearly everyone else

Soon after I came to the secluded town
at school, at lunch, I'd see you standing around
I started to watch you from a distance
Such beauty, such grace, but still harboring much strength

You'd occasionally notice me
a subtle smile would appear on your face
the way you'd look at me in the corner of your eye
I'd just turn away and pretend it was a mistake...

The first year was nearly over
you wouldn't be there the next
We talked a bit in the middle
but stopped for nearly the rest

Even then, we still had a connection
It was that way ever since my eyes set in your direction

The last days of the year finally arrived
the event that was about to bring us together again at its rise
The event itself is of no important detail
it seems surprising since it caused our love to prevail

After the happening we still didn't talk
he'd sit on the auditorium ledge
away from the lunch benches near the sidewalk
after class I'd see him sitting there
Listening to music
his long beautiful brown hair waving in the wind
everyday, I'd climb up on the ledge and sit near him
He'd acknowledge me with a smile
and that would be the end
The bell would ring, and we'd head back to class again

The last day I'd see him that year was a rainy one
We were standing near the lunchroom
sheltered from the rain
watching it fall, as my heart fell with it
the bell rang and my heart turned to lead
suddenly the air around me felt so dead
Then he hugged me
long and tight
he told me it will probably be the last time
the last time we will get to hug for a while

We headed our separate ways
off to class, in the rain
and I wondered
will I ever get to see him again?...

Author's Notes: I will be writing a part 2 of this and then many more about him.
