I feel so far and distant
unseen by any light
I hear nothing but air
during the calm, silent nights
I see the world in diffrent ways
whenever i'm with you
I laugh until the sun has set
and smile at the moon
a joy glows in side me
ever since we met
everyone sees me as an invisible
quiet soul...
but you see me for who
I am
the girl inside of me waiting
to be shown
if only you could see my real feelings
for you and how
I feel when
I don't have you by my side

The author's comments:
i wrote this poem to show my feelings for a boy i like at my school. he sees us as just friends and nothing is wrong with that, but i want to show him how i feel when he is around and the magic that happens when i am with him hopefully one day i can go and tell him how i really feel and he will feel the same way. of course there is only one thing in my way... rejection. to the people reading this don't be afraid to tell the person you like that you like them. for all you know they might like you back. so don't be like me take risks and see what happens. also if you do take that risk a way to make you feel better is sugar. it may not solve the problem, but it sure can cushion the blow. thank you for reading.

I agree with the author. I would love to tell a girl at school I love her but I fear rejection as well.
