Clouds had settled in on the frigid day.
Their love was frozen, held in place.
His loving stares and her fair love
Could not conquer their stubborness.
No matter how hard she tried she was ridiculed.
All the signs he had shown with great care
Were not perceived by other than her.
He had loved her for quite some time,
And she well knew what he wanted.
But how was she to speak up?
How was he to get past his reputation to love her for real?
She tried so hard to get past the stares
Past the rumors and humored lies
And he saw so well past and tried hard as well.
Like Romeo and Juliet they had moments.
Silent and unknown moments where their eyes met,
Hearts raced, and it was like love at first sight.
But ala it just could not come through.
Like Jack and Sally he could not see
All she had done, all she sacrificed for him.
Suffering and tattered her heart was when he would not look astray his work
To catch a glimpse of the girl behind him,
Darkness covered in her golden hair.
Their personalities mixed and mingled,
His status as a social king and she as a Fallen Angel
Went so well with everything.
And who was this girl you may ask? The Night of his Day?
None other than me, who stands before you now.
Cloaked in darkness and despair, waiting for the chance to show her love.
Maybe today, maybe tomorrow. Uncertain she was standing in the shadows.
