I saw him behind the stack of books
Skinny build and ordinary looks
Thick black frame around sleepy eyes
Expression clammy and mighty wise
She barged in and stood with a stare
Scared me a moment, unaware
A long blue skirt and half knotted curls
Little different from those next door girls
He caught my eyes, gave a disturbed smile
And that’s what I call ‘The Nerdy Style’
Smiling is polite, I was taught in school
Then why did she react like I was a fool?
What did he think?
Did she even blink?
I should have smiled back
I just sat there like a sack
He’ll think I am a pile on
Oh no! She’s already gone
Two lives. One interesting chapter.
Fell in love and lived happily ever after!
