Boy meets girl,

Boy likes girl,

But it’s always complicated,

He calls, she texts,

One date, what’s next,

Love? Sex?

Boy likes girl, but he doesn’t know,

She’s meeting up with his best friend after the show,

When she says she has to go,

Except they never said they were exclusive,

So when he finds out she has a thousand excuses,

Boy loves girl,

But he’s afraid to say it first,

So he just flirts, hints, laughs, winks,

Allows her to think he wants nothing more

Than a hug or a kiss,

But he wants it all,

Boy lets go,

Of what could have been the greatest love of his life,

But he’ll never know,

Because he was to scared that she’d say no.
