Will it Last?

Mesmerized by his dark brown eyes,

Freckled face and cheesy smile,

The feelings from the past start to come back,

Something she thought she would never feel again.


Her cheeks hurt from smiling, her stomach cramps from laughing,

Finally, someone to fill the cold empty space,

A hole she thought could never be replaced.

Seeing him makes her day,

While the thought of losing him can break it.


Months have gone by and the butterflies still occupy her stomach,

When they’re together her words get jumbled.

She’s nervous to say something stupid,

Yet she couldn’t be more comfortable.


But at times she wonders if this one will last,

Or will he run at the first sight of conflict like the boy in her past?
