I Wish He Knew

default ©

Published: February 2013

I wish he could know
What I'm too scared to show.
I wish he could see
Just how much he means to me.
I wish he could tell
That I know him so well.
I wish he could feel
My love that is real.
I wish he could hear
The things that I fear
About him never knowing
That my love for him is growing.

There's this boy, and I've had a crush on him for three years now. Sometimes people will hint that he likes me and until recently I wasn't sure. However, now I know for sure he likes me, but people say stuff about him...he just wants a fun night, he's a player...except he's always been so sweet to me and I feel like he's a good person. And now I know he likes me, but it's been so long and I wonder if he still does, and if he doesn't and I tell him I like him, what if? And it's like I don't even know how I feel. It's like one day I'm in love with him and the next day I'm over it and I'm afraid I'll make a stupid decision in the heat of an emotion that doesn't last.

Hi, I'm one of those girls whom you wrote this poem for :). I really wish my crush could know my feelings and hear how he makes my heart skip millions of beats and how he makes me breathless. I don't think he even has a clue, and a part of me wants him to know everything, but another part of me wants these feelings never to be shown. Thanks for writing this poem. It's really awesome!
