I Don't Know What This Is

You like classical music and pop music, not in one setting but still you do

and musicals and anime and good books and you do this gesture with your hands when you are thoughtful

more of a subconscious chewing on your finger in such a cute manner

so pensive and delicate

I want to take your hand away from your mouth and....well

Anyways

You have this special smile for me, but you also have one for her

you laugh at all I say but I see your face when you want her and she says things to you

and I want to be able to affect you that way

I want you to think of me in the sun with a grin

because sometimes I believe I love you, then I lie to myself and say I never did

You eccentric, egocentric, silly moron

but I wish for you to be mine

my eccentric, egocentric silly moron and

I think of you when I hear a piano or see a blue sky or feel grass on my bare feet and

I want to show you all the things I love and dance with you because

I figure that if I do that, have all the things I love in one place, you will see

and I will see and possibly be happy

Because this isn't really a letter nor is it a poem but in every way it is, but more than that it is a song

a song and a whisper and I want to know

I want to know so much more about you

I want to see every smile you have to offer

I want to tell you about the colors I see you in and hold you even though my arms are not quite

long enough to reach up and around your neck

Or maybe they are, but I have never tried, and will never get to try

because I don't have the opportunity

You tell me things about you and insult me and laugh with me and I want it to be that

way

for the rest of our lives and I want it to be me and you, bud

I want to be everything for you

Because people tell me they know someone and they don't really know them and

I tell them knowing someone isn't knowing someone unless they really know them and they never

know

never know what I

mean

From your thoughts comes the most beautiful thing. I loved this poem. So much so, that I thought of my own crush. 5 out of 5 stars, my friend. You know how to make people smile! :)
