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."
