I Knew a Girl
By Christopher A. Diaz.
I knew a girl
She knew me
During long periods of studying
The mystery of the Gothic genre.
" Hello. "
" Hello, can I help you? "
" Um, yes. Thank you. "
Is how it would go.
But one day, she looked at me with a strange smile,
And a little nod,
What meaning those gestures had I did not know.
Finally after hours of debate
I decided to take her on a date
She was two years older, and there were shivers on my shoulder
When she said yes to me.
For now I had a chance to learn and to dance
And see her radiant beauty.
Oh, the look of surprise in my dormice's eyes,
When she entered in a dress
That still managed to impress,
Despite the fact it showed her thigh.
The date was fine, the music divine
As we watched the stars in the late hour,
As I looked in her eyes and she in mine,
I wondered if I should yield to the desires
She had stirred in me,
Who was two years younger than she?
The flame in me became too much
I turned her head with a gentle touch
And as the clouds outside faded into mist,
I gave her a loving kiss,
Which seemed amiss
After seeing the look in her eyes.
It was sad and glad
At the moment that had occurred.
I could not fathom the reason
For her fear which I had stirred
Until I looked at her left hand
And saw the gem on a cold, metal band…
I have moved on, with a college diploma,
Hoping I will exposed to the aroma
Of Cupid's arrow once again
But, no matter how politicians end
Or the sun changes in hue
Although I may eventually meet my love true
I will always remember
The date that we had and the girl I knew.
