A poem about the early stages of a crush / unrequited love
|Sweet man, who I so adore
Give me a reason to give you more.
I want your body, soul and mind,
A sweeter love you'll never find.
I want to feel your warm embrace,
Learn each expression to cross your face.
Your eyes so soulful; warm and bright,
They sparkle with spirit, joy and light.
You humour is childish, cheeky and sweet;
Bringing easy smiles to everyone you meet.
Charming, smart; yet you play the fool,
I know it's not your intent to be cruel.
You chat and play and flirt,
With any girl in a skirt.
I have no claim and that's just fine,
You behaviour is a crystal sign.
I need a reason to stick around,
To keep my feet firm on the ground.
Every day gets more hopeless,
As I sink into my remoteness.
I can't go on, emotions burning,
Heart aching from the yearning.
Give me a reason - a hint or sign,
That these feelings are not just mine...
