Do You Love Me or Not?

I have always asked myself
Do you love me or not?
When I had surgery
I was on a wheelchair
I could get on the elevator
Whenever I wanted to
You asked me if you could go with me
I said yes
My heart raising
Skipping a beat
I saw that gentle smile
It was beautiful
Everyday in 2nd period
You asked to help me out
After lunch
You asked to help me out
You would take me to my next class
I would ask myself
Why do you go with me?
Do you love for me or not?
I thought we could've had
LOVE
I cannot explain my feelings
Inside of your heart
You are different
Why do you hide it?
Express it
You cared for me...
...When I was sad
...When I was happy
I miss you
One day
I asked this girl
"Do you know him?"
She answered
"Oh. Yeah. He is popular with an 8th grade girlfriend."
I never saw you as a popular 7th grader
Since that day
Everything changed
You started to act like a jerk
Just because you got an 8th grade girlfriend
O.M.G.
She is an 8th grader
BIG DEAL, right?
Why did you change?
You were so blind
You still are
I thought you a heart
Where is it?
Don't judge a book for its cover
Have you ever heard that before?
Maybe you have
In 2nd period
You would look at me...
...You would stare
...You would glance a tiny smile
I say peace
You say peace back
I smiled
I wish you knew how I felt
Can't you notice my fake smiles?
When I try to talk to you
What do you do?
Walk away like if I never existed
My feelings are real
I love you with all that I am
This is the truth
I hide this feeling
Only because I know
You will never feel this way back
I cannot let you go
My friendship with you
Is too important
To be ruined by three words...
I LOVE YOU!
The truth is
You mean so much to me
But it hurts to realize
You can't see
I wanted you to love me
I wanted you to care
You made it fairly clear
You do not want the same
I bet it is all my fault
Who else can I blame
I see you in the morning
It brightens up my day
I want to tell you how I
FEEL
I have kept it locked up
Because I know there is not a
SINGLE CHANCE
You are just playing with my
HEART
