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,
FOREVER.'

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

    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.
