Hurting Poem

I love this boy who I have been in love with since I laid eyes on him, but he's too scared to love me back. I wrote this poem about him and how he makes me feel.

Why Doesn't He Love Me Back

©

Published: August 2013

Heart pounding
To those light brown eyes,

Racing to the beat of the drums,
In my imagination.

Warm feelings rising for him,
Butterflies and knots in my stomach.

My eyes meet his,
Our hands touch,
Then our lips,
We are no longer on earth.

Two hearts, one love,
I put my heart all out.
Only he knows what to do with it,
Take it and love it,

Lovebirds we'll become,
Love has to come first,
Dreaming that soon lovers we'll be,

I'm awake now,
It was just a dream,
Dreaming about the love I have for him,
The love he doesn't have for me,

I've always been shy. I have trouble talking to people, and I'm not really super close or comfortable with any guys, so I'm extra awkward around them. I have a lot of anxiety and depression, genuine philophobia, and some OCD. I hear things in my head that keep me focused, but whenever I try to think of a boy in a romantic way, the voices get so much louder. It's like they're stopping me from caring about someone in that way. Now I realize they're protecting me, but it can get really scary. Well, there's this kid I work with who I really like, my first crush since third grade, and he doesn't really notice me. I try to talk to him and joke around, but it's so uncomfortable and never really works out. He goes to a different high school and he's in the grade above me, so I know it'll never work out, but it still hurts. I want him so badly, but he doesn't really see. He's like my one ray of hope, but it's all just turning into despair.
