Catch Me

It started out as friends,
But somewhere down the road I took a left and before I knew it,
I was lost when I looked into your eyes.

I got lost deeper and deeper
With every complement you said,
And every encouraging word you told me.
I was scared to tell you the truth,
But now I realize I must.

I had my words clinched in a fist for so long,
But now I realize I must let them go and be free.
If I tell you this you must promise,
To be ready to catch me,
Because I have fallen for you.

If you aren't willing to catch me,
Please warn me.
I don't need more pain,
Than what I've already gone through.

Your words come across as soft and sweet. Words that MUST cross the heart of your crush, past, present, and future :)

This sounds like it came straight out of a beautiful movie, and thats not a lie. :)

It's really good... clever play on falling for a guy. :)

Beautiful. I love it.
I hope he caught you. :)
My guy didn't catch me, but I did get a warning. We're still good friends, if you're wondering. ;)

He didn't catch me. I got no warning either.

 

Thanks everyone for your comments.

:/
I'm sorry.
Someone will. Just keep your head high and beautiful words coming from your head; optimism is the key.
Man, I sound like a wannabe motivational speaker. Rich, coming from me. ;)
Sorry this is so long and such.
