One Spring Night - Poem by Matthew Jenkins

One spring night,
Years ago
He spoke to someone,
He didn't really know
Talked about everything,
That they loved
Music, movies,
And even books
Time went on,
And he wanted to see
So he asked this girl,
'Will you meet me'
She said yes,
And he left his place
To pick her up,
Behind her place
They knew that it was wrong,
Yet they still met
And discovered a love,
That hadn't been set
Although they were busted,
Because she was fifteen
The cops decided,
To call her family
Her step-dad said,
'Never see her again'
He took into stride
And left her with him
He was eighteen,
At the time
They decided to meet,
Down the line
And he knew it was over,
Just like that
Yet he never saw,
His admiration grow fat
And big and wide,
He never imagined
This little love,
Would grow into such passion
Half a year's time,
Now has passed
Yet his love for her,
Still grows fast
Before they knew it,
They were talking again
Always pushing past,
What others considered a sin
Finally now,
There were together
Two as one,
Birds of a feather
Meeting in secret,
So nobody knew
The love between them,
That daily grew
Leading seperate lives,
Pulled them apart
All his fault,
He broke her heart
She told him one night,
'Baby, it's over'
He got drunk,
Instead of staying sober
Years pass on,
Time still moves slow
It'd be so much better,
If he allowed his love to show
It's too late for them now,
But he still tries to be
The man he should have been,
Now he finally sees
Even though they wanted it,
And attempted to save
They both knew their love,
Would never see another day
So best friends they become,
Standing side by side
He will always love her,
'Til the day he dies
