Why her obsession with your old shirt? It is kind of depressing.

Girl 2 - 12th grade. Originator of 'the look' (that characters such as Leah or Shirley embody in my stories).

That's kind of strange but if it made you happy, why not. :)

I hope the next love is more lasting and fulfulling. You are very young still, so keep hoping.

Girl 4 - the character of Leah is based on her and has the look.

You took my breath away - may sound better.

Girl 5 - different altogether, probably the most attractive to me even without 'the look', does indeed have dyed-red hair.

Nice - so do I. :P Red is in all the time thankfully.

Just a Day with you

Life goes on, things change
First you liked me, now you think I’m strange
People grow, they mature, get wise
You don’t think I still fit your size


I remember the street you used to live
There was a park, a hill, things had to give
You left your clarinet on the bus
I picked it up, returned it, I had no fuss. 2 comments


You and I will never work
You’re too involved with my old shirt
Memories last but we don’t fit
We spend too much time in bad snits 1 comment


I remember you, skating on the canal
I took your picture, you took a bow
I watched you dance up on that stage
We spent a day walking ‘round Mooney’s Bay 2 comments


Remember the time you spent out west?
Perhaps it may have been for the best
You took my purple shirt with you
To remind you of me, to avoid being blue 2 comments


You and I have never worked
You’ve played with my heart but what’s it worth?
Memories last but there’s no more smiles
We’ve grown apart so many miles 1 comment


Bridge


That semester of college where we first met
Looking at you, it all seemed heaven-sent
You talked of puppies, and life in Aylmer
You took my breath but I still felt calmer 2 comments


My job in Wal-Mart near yours in McDonalds
Seemed like there’d be no potential problems
You dyed your hair a nice bright red
And I adored everything you said 2 comments


I loved you then, and I always will
But wisdom and pains are always billed
You and I can’t find that spark anymore
We’ve lost the smiles and now I’m sore 1 comment


You and I will never work
You’re too involved with my old shirt
Memories last but we don’t fit
We spend too much time in bad snits 1 comment


You and I have never worked
You’ve played with my heart but what’s it worth?
Memories last but there’s no more smiles
We’ve grown apart so many miles 1 comment
