"Your dreams only become intangible when you stop reaching" ~me ;)

Save the last...

for one last parting glance
one last chance
To look back
and plead for another.

Save the last...

for me, preferably
Because maybe
It'll mean a little more.

Save the last...

Shed as many as you like
in the privacy of your head
But please,
don't trap me there too.

Save the last...

for our last
casual conversation.

Save the last...

Anything sentimental
that will make you see
you and I
are meant to be.

Save the last...

anything but dance
you know I have two left feet.

Save the last...

maybe that way
you'll see
it's a little harder to let go.

The author's comments:
I wrote this a couple months ago when i graduated 8th grade. This was what i wanted it to be like. My crush would suddenly realize at the last minute that he liked me and we wouldn't have to say good-bye forever. But, then reality set in and i was left with this poem instead. So, enjoy!
