Butterflies

I try to hide myself
because you cause me
to crush my myself.
But here you come,
strolling,
down the hallway,
a smile on your lips
and it reaches those eyes,
I can't take this
the weight of my secret
is slowly crushing me
and I find it hard
when you're sitting near
to hide my emotions
so they play
a twisted game of
peek-a-boo,
where one at a time
they fill my mind
then they disappear
I can't keep them in my grasp
and you don't even try
to stay away.
You play these games with me
which will amount
to what you meant all along,
friendship.
And so I play along
though it's difficult
when all those feelings
fall upon me,
making my butterflies
take flight
but they're wings are too light
to lift my crushing secret.
