Kind of; Sort of

I kind of sort of like you
no matter how hard it is to say,
you make the sunshine
come out during the rain.

You create the smile across my face
and make my insides turn inside out.
You turn all the bad,
to even better than before.

Butterflies crowd my tummy-
whenever I hear your name
even if it's not you they speak about,
I know you're just a minute away.

My eyes glance at you
as my cheeks turn cherry red
your smile widens my eyes;
that's enough said.

When your hand
slightly brushes my skin;
an exciting sensation
rushes down my spine,

Unforgettable feelings;
sensational tingles
as your cheek brushes mine,
making your lips tease my lips.

Slightly touching then falling away,
leaving me hanging till next time.
Your hand teases me,
unimaginable thinking.

Dreams coming true;
and I blame you.
Grabbing my hand
pulling me close by surprise.

Whispering cute nothings-
that only I can hear
I tense up,
but the good kind, not bad.

Then you're off again
leaving your scent upon my skin,
knowing sooner or later
our lips will touch.

For real this time
full of passion,
as time passes, in our own worlds
as two become one.

Perfectly unalike.
Lying to you from the start;
I don't kind of sort of like you
I am completely falling for you.

Fair enough. I hadn't thought about it like that.

this is "cute," but i think that's also the problem here. i've eard all these images before. can you think of a new way to express that excitement of a crush, relationship, whatever you want to call it? good luck. keep trying.

That was basically my point for this poem. I wanted it to be all cute, thats how a new crush feels, its like you revert back to being a child and all you can think of is that boy and only cute and lame words come into your mind as your writing his name all over your folder, and I wanted to express that.
but thank you for your opinion. :]
