Live everyday like it's your last day on Earth - because you never know when it just might be.


I don’t know if
I should take you seriously
or not.
I don’t know how you feel about me.
But I know how I feel about you,
and what I feel for you is love.
When you say
I love you,
for some reason, I don’t believe it.
I don’t know what to do.
I don’t know if I should let you in.

I don’t know if you’ll be my shoulder
to cry on.
Will you be the one to save me
from the depths of loneliness?
Will you be the one to love me?
Will you be the one who will forever
hold me in my arms when I need someone?

Love is a crazy, powerful thing.
I can’t control what I feel and what it
does to me.
I have a habit of falling head over heels
for someone right after I laid eyes on them.
But those people have put me through pain
that if I feel again, I feel I might explode.
So of course, I fell hard for you.
But with you, it’s different.
I put my armor up and it’s hard for me to believe you.
It feels that I’m in a war with the person that’s
suppose to love me.

When I say
I want you,
you know that I mean it.
But does it effect you and
do you feel that same feeling?
When I kiss you, I know that I want you.
But is it my heart that wants me to love you or my mind
that tells me that I need you.

Will you be there to catch me when I fall?
When I’m going through pain that life throws at me,
will you hug me and promise me
that everything is going to be okay?

Today though you showed me how
much you cared.
I told you about what negativity was doing to me.
You listened and you held my hand.
When a tear rolled down my face
with a touch of your finger, you brushed it away.
You put your arms around me and held me tight.
You told me,
Everything is going to be okay.
And then you put your lips on mine and showed
me how much you cared.
I knew that today was the day that I knew you were
the perfect one.
I now know that you love me.

I think anyone can relate to this poem because it talks about if you should let someone who could be your true lover, in your life or out.

You're right, this is very relatable. I feel like its so hard for me to open up, and when i do its only through poetry, and even then i'm afraid to even put my feelings on paper. At least you have someone to share it with. I guess my one is still waiting.

I really like this poem. Its so detailed and well, what else can i say? Its just amazing. Keep writing!
