Girl #904

He never liked her,
can't she see?
He's waited so long for Girl #3.
And she's only girl #904.
His hand sculpts a world
she longs to see,
but his eyes are puddles
of indecision.

His lips
taste like slurpees
but only in her dreams.

I see her try as
she begins to fall.
Can't he see
she's waited so long
for someone
to tell her
what love is anyway?
And her eyes are streams
of baffled hope.

Her hand
feels like laughter,
but only in his dreams.
