She saw him looking at her,
She watched him smiling slightly,
while his friends teased him.
She saw him trying to talk to her,
but hesitant several tries yet finally he did;
She watched him slowly expose himself,
as they shared each other’s souls.
She tried hard but she couldn’t handle
what was beyond her grasp, or what he never told.
She saw him drifting away and
become everything he never meant to be.
Yet, he never knew,
she, who watched his smile, his moves, his talks,
was his only savior.
