5'2 boy sitting diagonally from me.
I've been in love with you since year 3.
You wear gray clothing almost every day.
When you look at me, you leave my heart in disarray.
You sort of know how I feel.
That's what upsets me the most.
I know you’re kind of shy.
I know you don't boast.
We have an on & off friendship,
And it's very sad.
You’re my best guy friend,
So why are we always mad?
Yes that's what I said.
It’s becoming a weekly routine.
Boy, you & I both know it's kind of sickening.
I care for you so much, how could you do this to me?
My friends say to stop liking you because the way you treat me.
But they don't understand the things you do to me.
Like make my heart flutter at a single glance,
Making me think of you at every chance.
The way you make me flabbergasted is beyond me.
But I wouldn't trade my feelings because you mean the world to me.
Where do we go from here?
Do we come together or steer?
I think that's up to you.
My heart is racing because of what you might do.
Too bad you don't know exactly how I feel.
But that's the deal.
I don't want to be hurt for real.
