A single boy and a single girl


A giant Playground.
A hundred kids and a tall dome pyramid.
Some were talking, others playing.
Some climbing and others reading.
A single boy and a single girl are left out.

The boy is sitting on the side of the school.
The girl was drawing with chalk.
The boy asked to draw with her.
The girl walked off.

As the two grew older,
The boy was thinking about that one day.
And how the girl was not interested.

The two saw each other in high school.
She was doing her homework.
The boy asked if he could help her.
She walked off.

As the two grew older,
The boy was thinking about that one day.
And how the girl was not interested.

The two saw each other one day at work.
She was working hard.
The boy asked if he could help her.
She said “yes, don’t I know you? ”

The boy started to recite his poem.

Remember this…

A giant Playground.
A hundred kids and a tall dome pyramid.
Some were talking, others playing.
Some were climbing and others reading.
A single boy and a single girl are left out.

As the two grew older
The boy was thinking about that one day
And how the girl seemed interested.

The two saw each other one day at the supermarket.
She was pushing the heavy cart to her car.
The boy asked if he could help her.
She said “yes, don’t I know you? ”

He said “yes you do.”
I tried to draw with you that one day.
I tried to help you with your homework that one day
I tried to help you at work that one day!

Remember?

The boy started to recite his poem

A giant playground.
A hundred kids and a tall dome pyramid.
Some were climbing, others playing

And the girl began to finish the poem.
Some talking and others reading.

Together they finished.

A single boy and a single girl are left out.

The girl never walked off again.

WINE comes in at the mouth
