Random Poem:


I thought maybe I might have a chance
when I looked at you and you smiled
What you said and what I felt,
it made me hope that one day
you might grant we my one wish
I can't convey my mind, I know
you get confused when you’re listening to me
but I’m getting confused when I’m talking
So if I don’t make sense-
I’ve listened to you
and I think I want to know you
I've watched you bloom
into this beauty that I can only
imagine to touch
Though it's only been a little while
I know I want to feel you
right here where my heart is racing
Pounding out of my chest
I have no idea what to say
I don't know what you'll tell me
but I’m talking to you
I hope this comes out okay
I’m trembling all over
I wonder what you feel
I can only hope that you aren’t laughing
'cause I can’t see your face,
can’t hear your voice
And this moment just isn’t passing
