But she just laughed

Collins Osanya

When the wind ruffled her hair, and

Her skirt rose past her knees and

Her eyes half closed, collided with mine

She just laughed.
But she just laughed,

When I talked of the sun in her eyes,

The glitter in her laugh and the dare in

Her smile. She just laughed.
But when our hearts clutched,

And pressed upon mine her breadth,

And my heart beat brazenly, and her

I tried to kiss. She just laughed.
But she just laughed,

For little did she know, that

Each smile me she did show, had

These feelings crisply snow, and this crush grow.
But she just laughed,

When I wrote sad poems,

When I wrote of her braids,

Of the spring in her walk…

Of the safety in her stare

For little did she know, that

I’ll love her till the sea dries…

Because she just laughs…
