"The unexamined life is not worth living." ~Socrates

I was never especially attracted to blond hair
Or blue eyes
Until you came around
I know you probably never think of me
And it's okay
But I think of you all the time
I think of you at least
3 times per day
Is that healthy?
Yes, I do realize how ridiculous I sound
And how crazy I act
But you're a little quirky yourself, so it's all good
I feel like you are one of those people I could just hug
For hours on end
Saying nothing
Remember the day I told you I liked you but you didn't like me back?
And I kept telling you I was okay?
I lied, I was crying on the bus
Remember when you had to tell me to go to bed?
That weekend I stayed away over night?
I thought that was the cutest
Remember at the dance when I kept playfully slapping your shoulder?
Whenever you said anything funny?
Yeah, I just wanted to touch you
I can't help that you're adorable!
And have gorgeous eyes and arms!
And have those cute cowlicks, and tiny ears, and perfect smile, and...
I'm sorry I left you behind at the dance
I didn't want to and I never thought you'd remember
But I spent the whole night searching for you
I'm sorry I couldn't kiss you on the stairway
I really wanted to, ridiculously badly
But if I stared into your eyes, I might have frozen
If I had kissed you
I have a feeling you'd tell me I was really good
Even if I wasn't
Thank you for waiting at the door for me
And walking with me between classes every day
I will never forget that
And that time you offered to give me chocolates from your dad's store
That was the nicest thing
Anyone has ever offered me
Please come here teddy I need to snuggle
You're so addictingly warm and sweet
I just want to rest my head on your stomach
I know I should be looking forward
But I can't help but constantly look back
Because that's where you are
Remember that peck you gave me at the mall?
When I saw you for the last time?
Thanks for that :)
I tried texting you but you didn't want to talk
But you were really polite
I miss you
I'm back again
*sigh* again of course
Because I can't stay away
I've only been away a few weeks
But it feels like months
Is it possible for me to get over you?

This was originally written as completely separate three-line poems, but I combined them. And yes, I did have someone in mind when I wrote this.
