The Boy Who Fell in Love

There once was a love
A love like no other
Between a boy and his sadness
Like most epic love stories it started off small
Short glances between one another
Thoughts of her in the back of his mind
The boy had begun to break himself apart day after day to try to make his edges fit hers
He felt incomplete without her
He found comfort in her presence and safety in her words
Yet no one understood his yearn for her
She made him believe that no one would
Love him the way she did
So he made home within her
The boy began to fear that he would never
Meet another who can make his chest ache in
The most divine way
His soul slipped closer into her touch
This love consumed him
He put all of his energy into her and her needs
His thoughts which were once sane became deranged and clouded by love
His mind loaded with endless thoughts of her
Some would say a love to die for
There once was a love
A love like no other
Between a boy and sadness
