I Want To

I want to write about how you make me feel,
How every time I see your face I know that you're real.
I can't describe the feeling you always raise in me.
I can't describe this wash of happiness that you seem to bring,
But I want to write about it; I want to write about you.

I want to write about that day we shared,
How every time you would laugh it would linger in the air.
I can't describe the loving look in your eyes.
I can't describe the reason why you won't say, "Goodbye."
But I want to write about it; I want to write about you.

I want to write about all our memories, all our stories, and adventures,
How we conquered them together,
But I can't describe the paths we took.
I can't describe the sense of security I felt in that one look.
But I want to; I want to write about you.

I want to write about us,
How everything felt was true love, not lust,
But I can't describe anything without you.
I can't describe all our hopes and dreams,
How everything that was so perfect left in a fleet of screams.

I want to write,
But I can't explain how our plans got so disarrayed,
How God just had to take you away.
I can't describe this sudden feeling I have to be by your side,
How even through death I have to hide all that I feel inside.

I want to write, but I forget how to describe what is meant.
I want to write about you, but I can't.
I can't describe the feeling of lost, the feeling of what it all cost
Or of the silent screams, the lovely dreams with just you and me,
But I want to.

I like someone but I think he doesn't like me because I know he likes my best friend so what can I do? I can't think about that. If he knows about this he will think I am mad. So what can I do? I make my heart strong. Now I can give him to my friend but when I see him can't strong my heart.

What hurts more than losing someone is knowing you'll lose yourself. You know the only problem with that statement is that when a person knows they will lose someone they try to gain them back. However, when they know they'll lose themselves, they don't care as long as they gain someone back. He's not into you. I know it hurts. I know it stings, and more importantly, I know you'll fall deep into sad mode. It's ok, but it's not ok to let your heart overpower your mind. Tell your mind it's ok to lose someone you never even had. And as to what to do, simply chase yourself before chasing him. I know it'll hurt, but I know it'll hurt more when you've given all you've had including yourself and you fail. Don't try for him; try for you and only you.
