If a boy sinks to his knees
Crying out her name in the middle of the night
But she isn’t there to hear him
Does he make a sound?
If a boy wears his heart on his sleeves
Hoping that she’ll notice his unique choice in apparel
Oblivious to her murderous dagger of indifference
Is he wasting his time?
If a boy writes about her daily
Confessing with words his feelings for the girl of his dreams
Even though they are nothing more than empty symbols on a page to her
Should he feel deceived or stupid?
If a boy cringes at the sight of her boyfriend
Knowing that he could treat her better
Wishing for a chance to prove himself just once
Would he be qualified as selfish?
If a boy could list every reason why he liked her
Recite all her favorite things in alphabetical order
And tell you just how much it hurt to watch the girl of his dreams silently reject him
Does he deserve asylum?
If a boy could say I love you…
No, if a boy could yell I love you…
No, if a boy could tear out his heart and soul
Sing every love song in the book
And still have the audacity to keep all his secrets inside to preserve his friendship with this girl……
Can he get just one chance?
