Does your heart get that way when you think of me? You know, that warm dizzy feeling. Like butterflies in the summer skies, with the wind blowing softly.
Yeah my heart gets that way intermittently, unequivocally but believe me girl you don't remember me. You see we were 5 when you and I first met. My heart lept, but I couldn't figure out why.
In school I bugged you a little, but not too much because I didn't want you to have any reason to dislike me.
We got a little closer by 7, but you were in a different class and I was scared that you'd forget about me.
I thought and thought of things that could make you like me. My mom even bugged me about you.
One of those grade 2 days, I had something to say so I walked up and said "hey, do you wanna be my girlfriend?"
Fifteen minutes ago recess started and I was playing my gameboy under the playstructure. Super Mario Bros. 2.
I just beat it for the first time ever and, you wanna know my mood? I was over the moon.
13 minutes ago, I told a friend and he said to me, "Wow man, that couldn't have been easy."
I said "It wasn't. Probably the hardest thing I've ever done. I can't think of anything harder, can you think of one?"
7 minutes ago he points to that girl, with that crazy blonde hair and says "Go ask your crush, she's right there."
6 minutes ago, I froze. I saw her and. I. Froze...
2 minutes ago I gulped, inspired by what I'd done, and I wanted to walk but I started to run all the way across the playground to talk to her.
I ran up and said "Hey, do you wanna be my girlfriend?"
Dylan said "No dude she's with me." The bell rings and she says "Sorry" as she walks back to class.
I didn't know it then, but that was when I experienced my first heartbreak.
15 years later, I look at your instagram every now and then and every time I do, girl I feel so blue.
She was the one that got away.
I see every other girl as inferior but not because they aren't pretty or because they don't fit into my ideals, no. I see every girl as inferior because they are not you.
You ruined me. You didn't mean to, or even know that you did but you did.
