My boy likes the color blue
And he listens to the same music I do
The same groups and artists
Such as Twenty One Pilots and Imagine Dragons
Of everyone I know
He is one of the smartest
My boy values his independence
He doesn't rely on others
He is a Christian gentleman
And he's funny too
He has his own jokes
that come with his bluntness
My boy is honest but shy
I am a Leo, he is a gemini
We are compatible by our zodiac signs
My boy has a musical talent
He is a true percussionist
You should see him when he plays
If I am about 5 foot 3
He is at least 5 foot 6
My boy likes to stay to himself
Because he minds his own business
Yet he can really pay attention to detail
My boy boy likes conversations
But most importantly
He is a good listener
I can talk a mile a minute
And he always listens
He has a lot to say
When he wants to
But somethings he won't speak of
Like the things I want him to say
I guess my boy needs to learn to speak up

Don't laugh but, I kind of like this guy in school. I found out that be likes me too. But we never talk about that stuff, instead he brings up movies and rollercoasters and whatever. I wrote this poem to read to him and make it easier on me to talk about these feelings...soo...yeah

Not really, it doesn't let me be too awkward about my feelings. Normally, all my crushes (ex- and present) know about it because I've told them so it's more like... yeah, they're well aware that they're too sane for me.

For a second, I thought you were talking about a kid but then I realized you actually do know your crush. That's kind of cool especially since my crushes on people don't last for more than a day or two. TFS!
