Teacher: Lindsay Perkins
His hands are soft, she has told me so;
His eyes are wild, she has bragged;
I’m all alone loving him;
His hair makes me laugh;
He gets up from his chair;
He is here! Next to me!
Love has affected me, Finally;
She gets up to leave, I open my mouth to tell her to stay;
She leaves and he’s next to me;
But I knew I had nothing to say.
