Did You Know How You Make Me Feel?


Published by Family Friend Poems December 2013 with permission of the Author.

Dear You,
Just so we're clear,
there's a reason why you're here.
You are here so I can have
the greatest gift and I'm so glad.

But just so you know,
I want you to see
how much you truly mean to me.

Let's see, how should I start?
First, let's talk about the way you affected my heart.
I can't think straight when you are near,
For I am blinded with fear.

The fear of you finding out
what I'm trying so hard to hide.
My feelings for you
are staying locked up on the inside.

Sometimes you make me want to sing,
sometimes you make me want to shout.
All I know is
when you're around,
I get butterflies.

I wonder how you feel
if anything I'm feeling is real
or is this all a dream?
Please God, put me out of my misery.

Because surely I must be dreaming
because, you are a dream
of perfection in every way

The way I feel about you,
I cannot even begin to say.

Are roses always red?
And do violets have to be blue?
But the one true thing I know
is that

I'm in love with you,

not because of your looks
even though that's partly it.
I love you for what's inside,
and hopefully one day, you'll be all mine!

I met a this guy in literature class and had a crush on him. As time went on, we became friends. He is handsome and seemed romantic. My heart beat wildly whenever l saw him. I felt cold whenever he came close, but l was less attractive and less brave to tell him he seized my heart. As time went on, we became intimate friends. And of course we shared the stories of our lives. But alas! I found out he was not my type. He didn't feel like the lover of my life. And worst of all l found out l could be his 30th girlfriend in high school. He's such a jerk he shamelessly told me. Now l hate him more than anything.

I relate to this so much! I have a huge crush on this girl. I'm even starting to think that what I feel is more than just a crush. I'm starting to think that I'm in love with her. Anyone might see her and think that she's just like any other person, but no. I'm my eyes she's perfect in her own ways. She's unique. She has something that I haven't seen in any other person. She's an angel, and hopefully one day I will be able to call her my angel.

When I am near the girl I like, I get butterflies and feel very flirtatious. I love her for what is on the inside. This poem is the true meaning of love to me. Her name is Amber.

I had a STEM camp and I met someone. He ended up being a close friend to the family, so I get to see him all the time. Alas, I'm too shy to ever go up to him and say I like him. That's why I'm here. Most of my poetry is about him, and if he were to ever stumble across it I would die of embarrassment because I wouldn't want to break the bond we already have.

I have this crush and he is adorable and he is so popular. I feel like he likes somebody else and when I first saw him looking at me he smiled. Since then I had a glamorous crush on him, and we aren't going to see each ever again, and my best friend knows and she accidentally told someone who told him. Now I get bullied.

In love with a boy that I can't yet call mine but hopefully will be able to one day. This poem explains my thoughts perfectly.

I am 23 years old. I'm what you would call a hot and attractive hunk......but this wasn't the story when I was way younger. There was this black beauty I had my eyes for, for ages She was my bench mate. I could tell she was into me too but I was too shy to bring up that discussion. By the time I got the courage to tell her, she was chummy with my arch-rival. It hurt cause she knew about the enmity between the both of us. I don't know if it was to spite me or something....just feel I was less shy, now I can't get her out of my head

In eighth grade, unlike my previous grades, I became a cool kid. I used to be the kid that was weird and... I guess you could say nerdy. All that all that changed eighth grade. I moved to Alabama. I got to present a whole new me. I became the cool, funny guy girls could lean on, not run away from, and I was always team captain. The only problem was that the girl I liked, no, more than liked, was at my old school. She had black-Brown hair, dark brown eyes and, well a big behind, let's leave it at that. She dated all through sixth and seventh so if I even ever had a chance, that blew it. I'm moving back, hoping to use this new me to my advantage.

Hi, my story started when I was in grade 3. Back then I was too shy and my voice is very little. So, obviously, no one can hear me. We were in the middle of a morning routine that time and we were singing. After it my classmates accused me of not singing, but I was. Then, my seatmate, Joshua defended me and said that I was singing. Ever since that day I began to notice him more and more until...I fell in love. We weren't classmates starting grade 5 so I began to send him chocolates anonymously on Christmas and Valentines 'till I heard the worst news yet. He was in love with my BFF Bea and vice versa. Gosh, it still hurts...'till now in high school
