   SECRET ADMIRER.
He asked me to write as he narrated
A story about a girl he met
A story about a girl his heart had fallen for
To inform her about the feelings he had
For cowardice had taken the better part of him
So he couldnt express himself by word of mouth.

He had developed a third eye on this secret admirer
Which always got him drown into dreamland whenever she came to sight
He would always imagine of how queenie he would treat her were she his
All this he imagined but couldnt let it out
He had no confidence say it loud
He was a coward.

They attended same class lessons from time to time
And exchanged red and blue pens from time to time
He borrowed her book pretending not to have grasped a lessons concept
All this he did due to an inside driving force
He had fallen in love
But he couldnt say it loud
He was a coward.

His last words made me draw a conclusion
He has not lost hope yet but is rather building confidence
He is on his way home
And believes that things will be made simpler
For his first stage of intent is already covered
He no longer is a coward.
