[5] Aiden

You look over at the girl,

And you smile.

Katie,

Is,

Beautiful.

You’re shocked,

Because you haven’t seen her in a while.

You’re worried,

Because she knows your secret.

You’re stunned,

Because she looks more gorgeous,

Every time you see her.

You turn to the girl who told you about Katie,

But she’s gone.

There was only one thing,

Left to do.

You start towards her,

When a hand lands on your shoulder,

And spins you around.

Where are you going?

Sarah’s face is angry,

And suddenly you’re tired,

Of pretending to have fun.

Tired,

Of having a fake smile plastered to your face.

Tired,

Of being controlled by your mother.

Aiden!

You tell her one thing;

You’re going to be,

The person you want to be.

You leave her standing,

Staring,

Angry.

Katie’s,

Eyes,

Meet,

Yours.

She smiles,

And you smile for real.

When you reach her,

You tell her you’re sorry for what you said.

Her response surprises you.

I won’t tell.

She smiles sadly,

And you take her hand.

It’s soft,

Gentle,

Fragile.

You tell her you’ll talk about that later,

And ask her if you can have this dance.

Her cheeks go pink.

I can’t dance.

You tell her it doesn’t matter,

And you put your hands on her thin,

Bony,

Fragile waist.

You wince,

But tell yourself later.

Now isn’t the time to bring that up.

You begin to slowly dance,

And you tell Katie she looks beautiful.

She looks down at her feet,

And sucks in a breath.

You really think so?

You know she’s downsizing,

Criticizing,

And beating herself up.

You tell her yes,

That she looks wonderful.

She smiles,

But pulls away.

This isn’t working.

I can’t dance.

You pull her by her waist into you,

And tell her you have an idea.

You lift her into the air,

And she’s light,

Just like a feather.

You place her toes,

Right on yours,

And pull her into you safely.

You both laugh,

And spin slowly in circles.

You tell her she’s dancing.

No,

It’s all you.

You tell her so is this,

Right before,

You’re,

Lips,

Meet,

Hers.
