The Indie Boy that caught my eye

March 7, 2016

PROMPT: Quartet

Skinny jeans paired with a classic hoodie,
Worn alongside a shirt that looks indie.
The unique vibe he gives out,
Without even trying hard to act out.
I wrote this back in secondary school many years back when the "indie" trend was at a hype. Thus, with inspiration and knowledge on the topic towards the "indie" stereotype then, it was a fun process crafting out the descriptive poem of what an "indie" boy looked like. 

Full poem:

Skinny jeans paired with a classic hoodie,
Worn alongside a shirt that looks indie.
The unique vibe he gives out,
Without even trying hard to act out.

So peculiar, yet mysterious,
He somehow latches on to your attention.
You yearn to find out more,
But he’s already gone at the door.

You turn to admire his back,
Bent on retaining the mere seconds of his sight left.
Wishing you could turn back time,
And memorize him for one final time.

How he looked, how he dressed.
How he simply stood out from the rest.
Not that he was just any guy,
But the one that caught your narrow eye.

Apart from his kind of music and rare looks,
you wondered if he cooked or read books?
If he was as kooky and weird,
If he could get and appreciate how your brain worked.

Would we ever meet?
And if we did, would we ever clique?
Though you are now only a fantasy,
I hope one day you’ll be a reality.
