Promise Me One Thing. - Poem by Zachary Clark

There was this girl,
We'd been friends for awhile,
A long while.

She looked upset, distant,
I asked her what was wrong,
She was silent

I asked her if I could help,
I asked her if she cared,
She was stubborn

I asked her if she loved me,
I asked her if she wanted to kiss me,
Her lips barely quivered

As I said, 'Well then I'll be off, '
She touched my wrist,
I stood still as a statue

She pulled soft on my arm,
I turned around,
She was there

On her tippy toes,
She then lightly, gently,
Slowly kissed me

She then said,
Barely a whisper,
'What is wrong is,
I love you

How can you help me
Is by holding me close,
Never letting go

Do I care,
I only care for you,
You alone

Do I love you,
That is why I am
forever scared

Do I want to kiss you,
Everyday there is a rising sun
Running across the darkness
bringing a new dawn
the coming of a new day

I want to kiss you

Every time I see a couple
Holding each other
Close, giggling

I want to kiss you

Every time I see my Mom and Dad
Watching them express
the the love they have
for each other

I want to kiss you

Every time I see kitten
Stretching, sprawled
Cute, innocent on the floor

I want to kiss you

Every time you say, 'Hi' to me
I turn my head to blush and think

I want to kiss you

Every time you say
Your my friend forever

I want to kiss you.

That is what is wrong that is
why I must ask you one thing'

I was curious,
I also asked slowly,
'What would that be? '

She says not more
than seven words,

'Promise me,
You'll always love me,

'I promise,
For I have ALWAYS,
Wanted to kiss you.'

    Wondering at one's feeling of love, is it right or wrong is what what constitute a teenager's experience after blooming signs of love.The poem nicely portrays the hesitation, and resistance that come at this stage even if he or she feels overwhelmed by the surge of emotions. (Report) Reply

    Yes, without lasting love there is no security for a lady. Only when the promise is kept up there will union between them ever! (Report) Reply

    Dear Zachary,
    Liked the poem, simple flow, earnest expression of love of an adolescent in no unambigous terms.I'm giving you 10. I hope you'll improve with your age with rhythm and style..Remember in love less said is always better, so is in poems. Let the reader ponder about it.
