As I was talking to him today,

I got up the courage to say what I always wanted to say.

I took a deep breath, looked him in the eye,

and said, "Will you be my special guy?"

He looked back at me and said,

"No, because I don't see you as more than a friend."

In my heart, I felt the pain growing

and I had to stop the tears from flowing.

Then he asked me, "Are you okay?"

I said, "Yes.", and didn't let him know it ruined my day.

I felt hurt, but I could pretend

that soon enough my heart would mend.

I looked at him, broken inside,

feeling as though I had just died.

I said, "See you around?",

and smiled, even though I had just been turned down.

He said, "Yeah.", and turned around to go

The boy who broke my heart because he said, "No."
