I seem to remember quite well and clear,
The first physics lecture of my college days.
The class was not what many could call dear,
I sat there sleepily, wearing that awkward, stupid gaze.
Slide after slide, I noted everything down,
It felt similar to sweeping a huge, filthy town.
Useless it seemed, just as water to a drowning boat,
Until I heard that voice, “Can I see what you just wrote?”
Taller than myself, she looked right into my eyes,
Content with themselves, her words sounded sweet lies.
A pony tail on her head, tender with a curl,
She wasn’t very attractive, but who cares man? …..She was a girl!
“O! Yes….of course,” I bumbled at last,
She gave a smile and I let my thoughts pass.
We spoke for a while and I moved pretty fast,
“Can I have your number?” And I hit a solid mass!
I thought someone had got killed,
Serenity! Not even a ding.
The once packed hall was no longer filled,
Death Bells! O yes…..I had heard a ring.
Two days had withered since The Day,
I hadn’t thought about it much.
But then I heard many of them say,
“Hot chick on campus! You wouldn’t have seen such.”
I rushed along to get a quick sight,
The lecture and the girl, all did pale.
But suddenly they flew back, as if in a flight!
“O my God! Is it a fairy tale?”
The curls were gone and so was the knot,
Fairer than I had seen, more gracious than I had thought.
I asked myself,” Is it all a plot?”
Because just like in a story, my dream was shot!
A demon stood just by her side!
He held her close, his hands well tight.
Their faces were filled with an affectionate pride,
And then, they kissed! … And all I knew was fright!
Thus, ended a story that never was begun,
My friends were worried, they thought I was done!
True it was, she was as lovely as a pearl,
But who cares man? She was just a girl!
