10 Things I Wish I Could Tell You

by Lila C., 14

  1. I wish I could say I didn’t feel this way about you, but I do.
  2. I am a coward—terrified to tell you. 
  3. You are beautiful.
  4. It has been 115 days since I saw you for the first time.
  5. It has been 100 days since we had our first conversation.
  6. How many more sleepless nights will I have to go through before I get over you? 
  7. My heart skips a beat every single time you look at me.
  8. You make me feel everything.
  9. I like you.
  10. I lied I love you.
