Part of her wanted to know

but a piece already knew

He wasn’t for her

Not the one

But he made her smile

made her laugh

made her want

made her forget

the world was spinning

Time paused

But it was clear

as the hands of time

caught up

The world rushing by

Curiosity and life

He could make her smile

a normal kind of love

And that was enough

to recognize

emotions restricted

and limited

He couldn’t be the one


he couldn’t make her cry
