“In all things it is better to hope than to despair”

Your beautiful brown eyes drive me crazy
All I want to do is run my fingers through your short spiky hair
I really want to talk to you but I don't
It's not because I'm too lazy
It's just not fair
My heart just won't let me
Is it because I'm afraid of getting hurt
I have liked you for a year and a half
There's something I'd like to say so please don't laugh
I have a crush on you
Why is it so hard for me to say
I see you everyday
Talking used to be so easy
Then people started pressuring me to talk to you
I know it sounds cheesy
I am scared to talk to you
It's not hard to admit
Someone please help me

I have like him for a year and a half and I just can't talk to him. I used to be able to until my friends found out I liked him. I know this doesn't really flow and it's jumbled and confusing, but it reflects how I feel.
