you draw a heart on the
pavement and you
color it in with some
shade of pink
that's really light
red, but specifics
don't matter when
you're in love, do
they?
so you go
out and find him
and say you've
dedicated
the heart to
him, but he
just smiles and
walks away as if
it's all a joke and
the rain comes and
dissolves your
little chalk heart before
you even have a
chance to say
"i love you."
because you're
still a child and
don't really know
what that means,

do you?
