You’re looking for the girl
Who’s smart, pretty and so much more
I’m sorry if I don’t even come close
To what you’re looking for.
But have you ever thought of this;
Does it ever cross your mind?
There are people who aren’t even close
To acquiring your standards
But who love you all the same
Despite your choosy upbringing.
If you lower those walls
And the barriers between
All the other people who aren’t ‘your type’
You just might see
That the ones that truly love you
Are those who aren’t even up to your standards.
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.
For me, it’s entirely useless
To give your all
To someone who might not ever be
Why would you suffer
Because of someone who
Might never be yours?
Why would you be with someone
Who does treat you the way
You want to be treated?
It’s because you were blinded by love
Stuck in disillusionment
Because you loved him.
I’ve had a hurtful past
Heartbreaks and aches
Memories I don’t want to remember.
I’ve been fooled
Misled and forgotten.
Then, I met you.
My broken heart beat
My breath started to shake
I got all jittery
I forgot how to speak.
I smiled whenever you’d pass by.
And… in one moment,
