The Little Things

A touch on the arm
A smile
A compliment
One look into your beautiful, blue-green eyes
All I have
I keep in my mind
Replaying over and over
My playlist of you
Of all the little things
The only ones I have
For what good
Is money or possessions
When the one you love
Will never be yours?
When you have to imagine
How it would feel
For your lips to meet?
I'd never tell you
How much I love to hear you speak
How many times I've listened to you
Watched you from across the room
Or how many times I've feared
That you'd realize it
And you can never find out
That my eyes have never seen someone
The way they see you
That my heart has never soared so high
As it did when you touched me
Or that each second I realize more and more
I'm falling
I'm falling
For you

I Should Tell You

Your eyes
Your lips
Your hair
And over
And over in my mind
Do you notice how I look at you?
Do you care?
Beautiful, beautiful wisdom drips from your every word
Craving your approval every second
Of every minute
Of every hour of the day
My goal each day
Just to see you
To talk with you
To try to win you from her
But her reign is too strong
Her iron grip on you too tight
As my heart slowly cracks
For you are hers
And she is yours
And I'm left on the outside looking in
For all the times I've upset you
For all the times you've felt my eyes on you
Before it's too late
I just want to say…
I'm sorry
I love you
I love you


Each day I see your face
Knowing mine is nothing
Each day I see your beautiful eyes
Knowing mine are heartbreakingly average
Knowing you don't understand
That when I look I my mirror
I have to look away
You sit down in front of me
Fluid words drifting from your lips
In the voice that should belong solely to an angel
I hang on to your every sentence
Afraid to let it drift away
I smile
I laugh
I cry behind my eyes
You touch my arm and walk away
Beautiful in your ignorance


I ask, fearfully, if I was annoying you
And you say yes
My world goes in slow motion
As the ground breaks beneath me
Tears spring to my eyes
And I don't dare let them fall
Feeling as though I could no longer breathe
Feeling as though I might die
And, in that moment, wishing to
I cover it up with a worried smile
Yet wondering
Can you see it in my eyes?
Can you see that you are my world?
I wonder if you know how I feel
How I long to hold you
To kiss you
Do you know what you're doing to me?
Do you know that I've never felt like this?
I wander
Breathing in your beauty
Happily conquered by your imperfect perfection
I can't stop my eyes from looking at you
Can't stop my mind from imagining you
Can't stop my heart from beating faster when you touch my arm
And you'll never know
How I yearn for your touch
How the thought of you can bring me to tears
You'll never know
Because I'm afraid
Of how I feel
Of what you'd think
But I need to know…
Can you forgive me for loving you?
These are the other poems I wrote for English. The reason I uploaded the other one seperate is because it was more of a fanfiction poem. This is something I wrote with my own feelings.
