By the way, this is not to mean any offense to any romance writers out there when I was talking about cliches or anything. I hope I didn't hurt anyone's feelings, I didn't mean to.

#serendipitouscomp Peppermint Love Story

A love story is known
For tragedy or triumph
For the love triangles and 
Breakups, the 
Cliches and the 
Plot twists

Well, this one is 
Different
It will not start with a girl
Entranced by his sparkling eyes, 
Or devilish personality,
Or his awesome abs (everyone swoons)

No, it's not about a boy who's 
A bad boy
Because why would she love someone who
Treats her wrongly?
Or a playboy (but really super-sensitive)
Because that's cliche by now, 
Right?
It's not about the super-brave one,
Or the super-geeky one,
Because that's been heard before,
Right?

Well, the story goes that
They went to the same college,
This girl named Emily
And boy named Micah
He was a senior
She was a junior
She sat on a bench, reading a book
He sat there too, doing the same

He glanced over, 
Read a couple lines
"What's that you're reading?"
"Oh, it's a book called Artemis Fowl! It's really cool."
She said, closing her book
"How about you?"
"Ah, just studying for Earth Science finals."
She nodded,
They introduced themselves,
Didn't see each other until 
Christian youth group

They talked
And chatted
And soon became friends

She liked sports
He liked basketball
He likes video games
So does she
She wants to be a mom
He wants to be a dad

Eventually, after learning
So much about each other,
They became something more
Boyfriend and girlfriend -
Or something like it

So they dated,
And their love was of
Peppermint

A sweet relationship,
Hugs and tender love,

Sharp, but cool
They loved with a 
Passion,
Emily and Micah
But they never went too far
No, they saved kisses and more
Maintained purity
Loved tenderly

A wonderful relationship,
But with a love like peppermint,
It didn't last
For the flavor is short,
Lingers on the breath,
But only a memory remains

And so they decided after a 
While
That they were better as friends
Just friends
They still loved each other, yes
But like siblings

He looked out for her, 
Made sure nobody did her wrong
She looked after him,
Made sure he ate and was
Responsible
But they were friends
And left it at that

Love can be like that
Not always cliche,
Sometimes it works out,
Sometimes it doesn't
And sometimes it's like 
Peppermint.

    Nice incorporation of 'peppermint' to describe love. A very poetic take on the prompt. :)

    Just so you know guys, I hope none of you are offended by the cliche thing I wrote because I didn't mean it to be offensive...
