Green-Eyed Despair Full of Love

There was a boy I knew,
When the cool wind blew on the wild nights,
Led to the lazy days where the birds chirped outside the window.
The drinks overflowed with bubbles,
Our crinkled faces were met with friendly faces of toothy grins.

His big, bright, round green eyes
Looked out at me with
Childish curiosity,
Bursting with anxiety and excitement,
Mixed with an intense cloudiness of sadness.

I wanted him to love,
I wanted so much,
Like a child.

His big, bright, peridot gems
Looked out at me with
Fear and such sadness
Paralyzing him and myself in a moment,
A moment of sadness I have never before witnessed in another,
This time,
I needed him to love,
I needed so much,
Like a child on fire,
I would burn him.

I kept away from the wild nights as the wind grew colder,
It didn’t lead to lazy days and the birds left as days grew shorter.

I wanted him to love,
I needed so much,
Like a child I gave and took,
And now he does.
