Achillies

I’m not Zeus, I don’t have lightning bolts
I’m just a normal guy who has loads of faults
I’m not Hercules, who’s strong and a hero
I am more like Neville when he was a zero
I’m not Batman, no gadgets or a car
I’m just a broken dude with a Twix bar
I’m not Harry Potter- who defeated the Dark Lord
I’m just a terrified guy with a flat he can’t afford
I am not Ron W, with his girlfriend Hermione
I’m just here wishing… will she be-miney?
All I am is a boy who is too afraid to ask her if she would…
Make my dreams come true, pretty please, I don’t want to be rude
I am so scared that she asked ‘what’s the matter?’
I didn’t know how to reply so I just leant in and kissed her
It felt so good and I wish it would have lasted forever
I guess this means that we are now finally together
So, I may not be Batman, Zeus, Ron, Harry or even Hercules
I have weaknesses of failure and girls, my name is Achilles!

First Kiss

We were walking without a care in the world
You were listening, listening to my every word
It was perfect like any other day
And you were all I needed to say
But then something was not right
The sky become dark, no longer bright
Everything felt lost, gone away
The happiness faded, it went astray
The rain poured, dripped to the ground
I looked to see but no one was around
It was just you and me, standing there
Cold, Soaked and couldn’t go anywhere
I looked at you, you pulled me close
Held me tight but still gentle as a rose
It was all silent, not a whisper or hiss
Right there, you and I had our first kiss.
