The Crush This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.


Deep in my dreams you hold me so near

But in real life, it's all much too clear.

You are just a boy hardly knowing my name.

Not knowing of the love that awaits your claim.

If you could love me as I do you.

A love that we could have, so strong and so true.

So next time I see you and our eyes meet,

Think of the ache in my heart so deep.

Because of this aching I feel down inside

I write you a poem of the feelings I hide.

I love this poem. I like how it rhymes and how it flows. I can relate to the feelings portrayed in this poem; it reminds me of when I was young in elementary school and had crushes on boys that I thought were cute.
