“I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.” -Marilyn Monroe

yesterday you smiled at me.

i cheesed back gratefully.

i don’t think you care about the gap between my teeth.

yours are perfect (though  one is chipped underneath.)

                i don’t know how you do it Venus’s tortured Cupid

                sending Goosebumps to my mind and making these fairytale butterflies multiply.

you’re never the first person I see when i enter a room (but you’re always the first i look for)

i walk by with a friend laughing

obnoxiously loud just to get your attention

                i don’t even  say hi so i come back by

                and our two second eye contact fills me with seductive tension.

                do you feel it too? No. i don’t think you do.

                We’ll always be good friends. And I’ll always want

More. But i can’t scare you away

Again so I’ll just stay a friend.

Really your presence is all i need I’ve

Quit on relationships for the time being. (I liked talking yesterday. like it was just

Us in the world and not some public place) I told you a few

Secrets and I think you know another, but you still look at me the same; you don’t run for cover.

you take away my fears with that sweet soft voice

your eyes are like fierce protection evading all that

 white noise.

I want to be the one for you but I think I’ll have to pass

and the secret that you think  you know isn’t the worse one that I have.

But as yesterday turns into last Friday and last Friday turns into last month

Yesterday will always be my today because I have a fairy tale dream

with you in it and

You are more than my ‘Twas Once.

I dedicate this to someone special in my life. If you're reading this look for your name. you know who you are. I just want to say thank you for giving me hope and listening to me. you're a ball of sunshine bursting my grey clouds of rain. and I know we're friends but as i told you before i can't help how i feel and an amazing person like you deserves to know what a positive difference you are. just do me a favor and if you read this don't act weird in school ok?

To love is to be vulnerable; Triumph is born out of struggle; We notice shadows most when they stand alone in the midst of overwhelming light.

This is very sweet. I love it. Your poem has so much emotion and you in it. All in all, it's beautiful and wonderful! Thank you for sharing this! Haha, as I said before, I love it. Thank you again!
