For me it happened at school
I was in music class
When I saw him
The boy I would hopelessly fall for
A guy called Miles

For me it happened when I walked into music class
I don’t know why I was there
Because I hate music
But there I was when I saw her staring at me
She was a girl called Kennedy

Weeks went by and I never said a word to him
I didn’t know what to say
All I could do was stare at him like some hopeless loser
I am positive that he thinks I’m some wacko
And that he would never go out with a girl like me

Before I knew it a couple of weeks rolled by
And I still couldn’t figure out what to say
I kept saying to myself that I would talk to her tomorrow
But so far that tomorrow hasn’t come yet
But I guess she wouldn’t want to be with a guy like me
Slowly weeks turned into months
I was still in love with him
Even though I knew nothing about him
Every now and then he looks at me
And my heart skips a beat

Months came and went
And still I couldn’t shake this feeling I have for her
I don’t know what this feeling is
But every time I see her staring at me
My hearts begins to pound

On one winter morning
I heard someone calling my name
I turned to see who it might be
To my surprise it was Miles
I almost fainted from pure shock

Finally on a winter’s day
I got to courage to finally call her name
As she slowly turned around
I began to think this was a horrible idea
But I can’t back away now

As he walked up to me
I thought for sure he could hear my heart pounding
Butterflies began to form in my stomach
I was finally going to talk to him
And right now I can barely stand up

As I walked up to her
I could hear the blood pounding in my ears
I could feel knots in my stomach
I didn’t know what was wrong with me
I am just going to talk to her

He said “Hi, Kennedy”
I could barely manage to say hi back
He was asking how I like music class
I told him I love music because it allowed me to think
The bell rang and he said we should finish this later

I said hi to her
And she said hello back
I couldn’t think of what to say so I asked how she liked music class
Right when I said that I felt like a complete moron
Thankfully the bell rang and I could have time to think about what I should say to her

I wanted class to be over so I can talk to him
I didn’t want to lose this chance
But then I started thinking about what I should say
Once I thought about that I wish class would keep on going
But time was not my friend today and the bell rang

I wish class would never end
I still couldn’t think of what to say
I didn’t want to ruin this
Because I think I know what this feeling might be
But I don’t know how to say it yet

As I waited for him
I began to panic
Because I love him and I don’t want him to hate me
I don’t want to lose him
Well it’s time to find out because here he comes

I walked out of the door to meet her
This girl who I never talked to
This girl who loves music
I walked up to her with only three words on my mind
I love you

He stared at me for a few seconds
And I begin to think that something is wrong with me
I wanted to run away
I didn’t want him to reject me
But instead he says “I love you.”

The moment those word left my mouth
I knew I made a mistake
Because how could a girl like her love someone like me
I’m positive she would say that we don’t even know each other
But to my surprise she said “I love you, too.”

I wrote this piece because I feel that so many people always think what the other person is thinking and sometimes they think that person hates them.

I think this is so cool! People always self-doubt themselves on their feelings and overthink everything. Heck, even I do. This is inspiring, a message that proves that sometimes it's the right move to go boldly.
