Oh baby, you consume me.

I can get lost in the mere thought of you

There's so much love inside of me it rattles my bones

I don’t think I'm strong enough

To face this world alone

Maybe you're too good for me

Maybe I'm meant to be lonely

But that doesn't make me love you any less

The thought of you draws such tenderness

I can't help but think about how beautiful it'd be

To feel your arm wrapped around me like a vice and

I reach out for you and beg for you to hold my hand

We could read together until the world gets dark

I would always be there for you

I promise I'd take care of you

You don't have to love me as much as I love you

But care about me enough to not let me go

Care about me enough to want to hold me close

Whisper in my ear baby tell me all the great things that were meant to be

Talk of all the places that we'll see…just you and me

I was looking at the stars last night and it became so clear

Your eyes are like the brightest stars

That shine with words I'll never hear

Oh please say that everything will be okay for me

If I make a mistake you won't think any less of me

I can't bear to think of you hating who I am.

Because every time I see you I see no other world but ours

And it's small and imaginary but it’s so maliciously beautiful.

I can’t forget it, won’t forget it. You’re everything I see.

I'll be good to you I'll be good to you when you deserve it least.

I wont break your heart but I'll most likely break mine

Because nothing good can come out of these love drunken words

But I'll stay here and go on loving you

Just pitiful me, drowning in these salty tears

And this...

This is the love of my teenaged years

The author's comments:
This is about a boy I was in love with earlier this year. He's beautiful and wonderful, but it never worked out. I still think it's interesting though, the way a teenage heart expresses love, or the feelings that disguise themselves as love, throughout their daily lives.
