6.14.10 – 20.21

locked thoughts thirst for the attentions
of a (nonexistent) friend,
unwilling to be acknowledged by sympathies that,
unabashed, will offer no intimacy

a boy with effervescent yet unwitting charm
could never have been so undeniable
in his attraction otherwise (but perhaps,
this may only be unabsolved resentment speaking)

boys with their careless smiles
and empty promises (pick up lines),
scattered across a girl’s unsuspecting heart,
mindful of its own unthinking

unwarranted discomfort bends to embarrassment
(she chides herself for unfounded expectations),
and the curtain draws on another level
of her vacillating self-esteem
