Love Story - Poem by Josh Howell

its the first day
of school
he walks down the hall

he see his best friends
hanging out
he still wishes she would call

over the summer
he missed her
he didnt know what to do

but its a new year
10th grade
they get to start brand new

he sees her there
with her friends
hanging out at her locker

because he loves her
even though they are friend
she thinks of him as a stalker

it always hurts him
to see her there
with all the other guys

and when he sees them
kiss her
inside he sorta dies

he goes up
and says hi
and she just walks away

and that hurts the most
because she does that
every single day

he walks in
his homeroom
her seats right next to his

and he hopes so
damn bad
she'll say lets make the best of this

and he loves to
happily
walk past and see her smile

the feelings he feels
for her
he hasnt felt this in a while

he texts her
everyday
he talks in a romantic way

and to him
a simple her
helps him get past everyday

so in lunch
he sees her
they have alot of classes together

when she says hi
he smiles back
he feels light as a feather

hes scared to eat
he thinks that she
will think he is a total pig

so he keeps his eyes
locked on her
for his love is just too big

she is
his obsession
she is his pride and joy

but in her eyes
he just just thinks
he is just another boy

at night he
cries alot
he has loved for so long

and its
at the point
his love is growing just too strong

he wishes he could
take her out
on a date

but he has no guts
no courage
so in silence he will wait

he goes home
and in his room
he writes lovely peoms bout her

and to him
for his depression
she is the only cure

so here it comes
the homecoming dance
its the biggest of the year

he get the
courage to ask
rejection is his fear

shes standing there
he goes up to her
will you go to the dance with me?

she gives him
a funny look
his hearts no longer filled with glee

he comes over
and hugs her
her heart is filled with glee

hey josh
remember ryan?
sorry but hes taking me

he starts to run away
not looking back
he goes to the bathroom to cry

he saw them kiss
his heart feel die
and inside he would die

then he turned sround
looking at them both
ryan then left after a hug

he looks at her
can we still be friend?
she replies with a shrug

luckily
its the end of the day
he can go cry alone

he will think of when
in 5th grade
when he treated her to an ice cream cone

so its the night
of the stupid dance
he realized he wants to end his life

he walks downstairs
in the kitchen
he pickes up his biggest knife

hes about to
end it all
then he came up with a plan

he got in his suit
and grabbed the keys
to his mom and dads old van

he drives fast
down the road
he is going to the dance

he is greeted
at the door
by his best friend lance

he runs to
the ball room
he sees her in the middle of the floor

she dancing with ryan
and he gets the guts
to slam open the door

he walked in
he ran to the middle
he threw ryan off of her

get the hekk iff her
shes my girl
shes just blind and cant see we belong together

ryan threw a punch
and he dogded it
he then knocked ryna out with one hit

he walks up to her
and gave a speech
for he was finally digging himself out of his self dug pit

he said in a stern voice
and looked in her eyes
and he began with his speech

'girl you wouldnt know
if u just looked at me
that id love to take u to the beach

becuz when im with you
it sorta hurts
when i have to fake a smile

and to finally talk
about this all
i have waited a long while

you eyes are beautiful
a blue crystal ocean
and when i look at them

and i wish i could show my affettion
by getting u a diamond ring
i dont care about the cost

every night i lie awake
laying in my bed
writing poems about you

i know last year
may have been a mess
but we can start brand new

i cound how many times
you smile at me
but i get lost in ur smile and i lose track

i know you dont know
but i love you girl
but u may not feel it back

you complain to me
and i wanna let you know
baby u are not fat

i know i prob sound
like a little creep
but i just had to get it out

and i know that
you dont like me
i highly doubt

so baby girl
you are my shining star
so remember what i say

so there you go i hope u understand
cause my love for you grows stronger
every single day'

just as he finished
his little speech
they stared into each others eyes

she grabbed him
and pulled him close
'i dont want any other guys'

they shared a passionate kiss
they were in lose
he was filled with glory

he finally got his dream girl
he was very happy
this is the end of my love story
