Longing To Tell You

When I'm near you I can feel it so strong.
In your arms is where I belong.
But you don't think of me that way.
Not yesterday, not today.
You're too hung up on her to see
The one who really needs you is me.
I could never repay you for all you have done.
I never thought I could feel this way about someone.
You've opened my eyes to a world i never knew.
I guess it's safe to say it's true...I love you.
But you'll never know how I feel inside,
Because, unfortunately, I'm too terribly shy.
I want to tell you, but I don't know how.
And what if you look at me differently now?
What happens if you turn around and reject me?
All of these feelings are torn up inside me.
Maybe i shouldn't tell you the thoughts in my head.
Keep them locked away in my heart instead.
I'll still love you, for now and forever.
But it doesn't matter...you have her.

When I read you, I do get the feeling that yours is a silent love. I do not know if I am right on that. But, what I do know is that here I am writing about an immensely talented poet.... you are perfect! A 10 indeed.
