The twinkle in her eyes lit up my world.
Her smiling freckled cheeks had me smitten.
‘You are beautiful’, I said.
She rolled her eyes,
(Oblivious to how it made me skip a beat)
Turned around and walked away.
Left me behind with the sound of her laughter.
I held on to her in the confines of my memory,
Building up scenarios,
Where the emptiness would fade away in her presence,
If only she knew!
