I saw you
across the way that day back in summer.
You looked up and smiled at me and my feet began to float forward.
Moving my feet through the grass, I saw bricks begin to block my path bit by bit.
My heart leapt with panic and I began to run toward you.
As I ran a seam in the sky tore and rain poured down on me,
ripping holes in my conviction.
Doubt began to seep in and my heart grew heavier, slowing my pace.
The distance remained no matter the steps I took through the rain.
The wall kept growing.
Soon I began to doubt I'd seen you at all,
that it all was a cruel trick of the mind.
I stood in the wet grass and peered through the sheets of worry.
In the haze I thought I saw your shape.
It was only just a shadow but that was enough for me.
The wall grew to waist level and I found myself finally blocked.
I searched for the shadow,
I searched for the boy who smiled.
If only I realized I could climb the wall,
the wall I'd made.
I would see you waiting for me just across the way.
