Do you swear not to tell?
My secret is that I love you.
Tell no one.
Friends come and go
But love is eternal
Don’t you think?
You like Bruce Springsteen
And 80’s movies.
I like Kate Nash
And films with Grace Kelly.
So we’ll watch something else.
I’ll watch you from across the room.
I spend my nights watching YouTube videos
I don’t know what you do
But I’d like to.
I spend my days
Looking at you from across the room
And talking to you from streets away
Your words like little prayers on my computer screen.
Can I tell you a secret?
I kinda like you.
Don’t tell anyone
Not your dumb friends
And especially not mine.
Don't tell the crows perched outside your window
Don't tell your mom
I'll sit on the fence and listen to my iPod
Every song reminds me of you.
I'll reference brand names in my poetry
And wonder how you're doing in California.
Tell nobody.
