One step at a time.
It was a new beginning.
You spotted me amongst the others,
stole me with your brave presence.
But I appeared not to be bothered.
Purposely sat across from you,
stole glances from behind my tattered textbook.
Wanted you to know, but not to know.
Wanted you to look, just not when I looked.
You never asked for my number,
but we knew where each other lived.
I’d pause to say hi sometimes,
wondering if this was it.
You never replied my last message.
Thought we had something more.
I guess you found the girl.
The girl who isn’t me anymore.
