Her Poem

I hate how every time I get close to someone
Something happens and I lose them.
I’m not surprised that this would happen
But there’s something I never anticipated:
How scared I would be of losing you.

I don’t think you realize how much I’ve fallen for you,
And to be honest,
I don’t think I’ve realized it either.

In the beginning I thought of you as just a crush,
But in time you grew on my mind.
When trying to sleep to rest my tired body
I’d think of you
To ease my troubled mind.

I see a beauty in you that seems so true,
I mite as well be calling the sky blue.
Your presence is like gifts to us all
You can make a little man feel strong
And stand up tall.

You found a spot in my heart
That most people get lost looking for
And it is so worn out and messy
You seem to not even want it.

I could be wrong though.
Damn, I hope I’m wrong.
Maybe it’s because you know you have to leave
And you don’t want to get to attached.
Maybe you just want a “thing” for the summer.
Maybe I’m just being to worrisome.
I tend to doubt it when people like me
And apparently you like me.

But you’re still leaving
And might not return
And wanting to break up
Is something I can’t concur
But is still an option against my will.

You live in the east coast
I live in the mid west
And the distance between
Makes everything pointless.

But still I wouldn’t mind
Trying to make things work
Magic happens at Hooters
We could milk this for all it’s worth.
