Now I Know

I know you don't need to hear this but
When I thought about you and I
it wasn't really me you were with,
It was someone I wish I could be.
Someone who could love you
And I watched through her eyes.
She knew what to do with your affection
And I knew how to watch.
I love to watch you fall in love with someone.
You're so strange and beautiful,
But don't love me.
I felt vulnerable under your love
I couldn't become someone who could love you.
Yet, I desired so.
I love your voice
I love your talent
I love your smile
I love your curiosity
I love your far away stare
Pondering thoughtfullybinto the distance
I love your... I love you.

So stay with with this someone you love now
it brings out these features.
I'll watch.
You love.
And I'll smile.
Now I know.

The author's comments:
Someone I feel strongly on and off about runs through my mind almost everyday and has been so since sixth grade. I've always thought about being with him and when we were finally together, I threw it all away. This was a way to tell someone what's in ether into my heart without telling him.
