Too late

When your eyes shine
Under the big lights
When you fly up the field
While playing the game

When your hair blows
In the unforgiving wind
When you rush past me
In pursuit of the ball

When your smell surrounds me
As we huddle on the field
When you drink my water
When you leave yours at home

When we pile into the truck
On cold frosty nights
When you give me a ride
Because my mom "forgot"

When you look into my eyes
And don't realize it
When your hand brushes mine
And you make nothing of it

When you don't notice
The hints I drop everywhere

When you wake up one morning
And realize you have feelings for me
I'm going to wake up next to a guy
That already did...

    This poem goes to "my favorites." The imagery "floods me" with feeling and memories. The persona's love, passion, and desire move and capture. Well done. Ruben.
