The One That Got Away

Girl from last year’s LAWS101 tutorial; to you I write this confession. Picture this. Making my way down George, walking slow, really slow, then I see you!

It’s been a while, and things have changed. We’re both a year older, a year more mature, another notch in the belt of life so to speak. But when I see you I feel like a child again; nervous and giddy. I feel like anything’s possible if I just believe. So here it is, perhaps a year too late, but better late than never right?

The only reason I attended Law tutorials last year, was to see you. Sitting opposite from you, your very presence captivated me. Your eyes drew my gaze and sparked my imagination. Your sexy smile made the severely unfunny jokes of the tutor almost bearable. Almost. Your hair, a silky sheen that I longed to turn into a tangled mess, if you know what I mean...

Sex. I mean sex.

We talked once, and I think you may recognise me... But the easy days of LAWS101 are no more, and I fear I’ll never gaze upon your sweet face again! I have moved on to complete my BA and I assume you are now in your 2nd year of law, on your way to becoming a hotshot lawyer in the big city. But before you head on your way into the turbulent world of corrupt mayors and cocaine addiction, I ask you to spare a thought for the boy that sat opposite you in your LAWS101 tutorial. The boy who’s probably now working in a cafe. The boy who liked you.

Because to me, you’ll always be the one that got away.

P.S. here’s a poem

The days of you have come and passed
Now gone without a trace.
No one left to match your charming
Beauty and your grace.
Life without you is like life without pizza
It’s quite a lot shitter,
And I don’t think that I’ll ever find
Someone who is fitter.
You captivated me with just your
Presence, and I believe
That no one in this world is quite as
resonant with me.
So adieu, farewell, and au revoir
We’ll meet another day.
But until that time you’ll always be
the one that got away.
