I met you, I actually saw you, this time.
You’re really sweet, simply neat.
I like your personality but sometimes you make me so sad, bad, and mad.
You made me feel things, things that I didn’t even know I had for girls.
Oh god, what do I do now? Is this real? Could it be? Geez.
T., calm down, it’s not a really big deal.
Maybe it’s because we’re so close; this feeling will blow over.
Laughs here and there, text messages saying don’t be scared, wrong signals, giggles, wiggles. Yup, that’s where it went downhill.
I made up my mind and yes the rumors are true.
These feeling are real; I love you; do you love me too?
I would ask you but things would get weird and I don’t want to be scared.
We all turn out to be friends and then it ends.
So I finally got the courage to ask you and you said yes.
Yes, yes, umm what do I do next?
What do we do next?
This is not how I expected it to be.
I finally built up the courage to ask you something important
so I guess we’re meant to be.
I was scared at first because I thought you would be like everyone else.
So, I pushed you away, but you kept coming back.
Until I was a little too harsh, and then you broke my heart!
You gave up on me but I never gave up on you; I promised myself that I’ll never lose hope.
