by Sara Kennedy

The sky was so beautiful yesterday
You didn't notice, though.
Have you already forgotten
the most significant conversation
of my life?

You care about nothing
I'm a mouse lost
in the maze of my mind
trying to discover the secret
of you.

Who are you?
Why do you affect me so?
Your words fill my mind,
Your image burns in my eyes,
Your smile is my hope,
and your laughter is my inspiration.

What can I say?
You are oblivious to the very clouds over your head.
The sun blinds you to my love
and I drift away in the wind
