I hear you when you say
You think that no one likes you
It takes all my power not to scream
“I’M RIGHT HERE!”
But I know I shouldn’t, and I know I can’t.
Because in all honesty,
I like the way we are now,
I don’t want us ever to edge away from each other
But it’s tempting
Just so tempting to experiement
If we could be more.
And even though the want is great
A part of me is afraid
Of unrequited love.
