Teen Confused By Love Poem

Heads You Love Me Tails You Don't

I wrote this poem when I was very confused about whether I had feelings for this person, or if I was just rebounding from a very bad break up. I think it's really cute, and I hope you enjoy!

Heads Or Tails

Heads you win,
Tails you lose,
Such a childish game
Yet here I am,
Flipping a coin
over and over again.

Heads you love me
Tails you don't.
My heart yearns for more.
It yearns for truth,
The words in your mind,
The emotions in your core.

Heads I love you,
Tails I don't.
Trying to make sense of this.
How do I feel?
What do I feel?
Or is this simply a trick?

Heads you think about me,
Tails you don't.
Do I ever cross your mind?
Do you ever worry about me?
Wish I was there?
Have you ever given me a sign?

Heads you win,
Tails you lose.
Such a childish game.
Yet here I am,
Flipping a coin
Over and over again.

I feel the same way there is this guy I like and some days I think he likes me but other days he is flirting with my best friend. I don't want to love him but I don't have a choice he is like a brother to me but I want more.

I once feel in love with this guy who was a year younger than me. But as the months went by I started to see certain things. He wasn't as sweet and innocent as he seemed when we first meet, so now we walk pass each other as if we never met.

Ok so this poem touched me because I totally feel the same way. I like this guy but he gives me mixed clues and confuses me even more when he doesn't text me back. And now I've heard rumors that he has a girlfriend...who's my best friend... I hope its not true and that he wasn't just playing with my heart to make me look like a fool
