I look at you and think
why can’t I love you like I want
hold you like you’re apart of me
kiss you like never before
and show you all the things I know
why can’t I whisper in your ear
and tell you what it’s like
to be in your arms

I see so many things
when I look into your eyes
and I can’t imagine what I’d do
without you here with me
why can’t I tell you
what you mean to me
is it because I’m afraid?
Its been ten months
and I never thought it would last this long
or that one relationship could be so strong
I can tell you everything thats on my mind
and not be afraid of what you will think
I know you love me and have accepted all the flaw s
I enjoy every moment im with you
and am no longer afraid to give it my all
I have fallen more in love with you
than I ever thought possible.

this poem is about not trusting my heart because the last time i got burned to the core in front of the whole school.

I couldn't understand anymore than I do. I love how you depicted it perfectly. It's not easy to fall in love. Not like everyone thinks, it's not always like the movies show. sometimes there's something you have to overcome-glad to hear you did it happily.
