Accidentally Catching Feelings
to write a poem about you.
To pen words that will externalize
how I feel. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Because I want you.
For no reason at all,
but yet every reason,
I’ve ever given. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’ve fallen abashedly again.
It is the juxtaposition of your kindness,
interlaced with your careful rejection.
The ease of how we speak,
awakens thoughts I shouldnt think.
And not just because you told me not to,
But because everything I want is always vexingly out of reach. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So today I will try not to want you
Today I will not bend my voice to lure you in.
And today I’ll ignore that my soul
longs to find it’s home next to yours. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Because the feelings I feel are
Far too deep
Much to fast
And most of all unrequited.
So today is the day,
that I must find a way,
To do the right thing,
And actually let you go.
