Favorite Quote:
"there's a darkness upon me that's flooded in light, and i'm frightened by those that don't see it" ~the avett brothers, head full of doubt

He told me
I have a beautiful mind
Perhaps from the passionately truthful
Poetry he's read
That I've written
And he stole in secret
Or maybe from the way
I genuinely care about him
Either way
He seems to have a high opinion
Of me
This seems odd to me
But now we're trying this
New relationship
Built on long distance crushes
And hidden feelings
He tells me he misses me all the time
Says he likes nothing more
Than to kiss
And hold me
It seems I have him
Wrapped around my little finger
It's not my forte
To be on the other end of devotion
To be the one that is adored
Although the last boy told me the same things
This one seems to be different
He seems to want me
For more than just his girl
He seems to want me to be
With me just to
Be near me

i chose the image because it portrays holding something delicate with both hands, like what i'm referring to in this poem
