4/2/19 – “Unrequited Love” – the prompt


Ninth grade.

Still the new girl.

The boy in front of me.

Smart, tall, a pleasure for the eyes,

Even from the back.



Smart, tall too.

Not an eye-strain.

No popularity quotient.

Cool John Lennon glasses, though.

Absolutely unique among peers.

Boldly individual –

A highly rated character trait in my home.

“Did your mother make you buy those glasses?

Were they cheaper?”

School smart.

What a dope!

Handsome, though.
