Poem for a Girl

The way your lips and tongue
craft their music causes my will to bend
Your smile, an inciting incident,
Makes interred feelings rise again

My tenders to you are spited by your pride
Your heart is cold as snow
My love, like a blanket, unrequited,
Is to you no warmer than your coat  

Yet you tempt me with kisses
Honey you’re tricky I should know
You’d up and leave me in a minute
But I’d still love you as you go

Your absence is marked by a
Rot in my heart, it grows as black as jet
The air is sweeter around you, girl I swear
Though I’m breathless in your presence yet.

– Keyveat Postell, The Haverford School, Class of 2016
