Thoughts When I See You
You’re the best part of this town
I have loved you too long,
not to see how beautiful others are.
Not to see how beautiful small moments
I’m in love with you, in small ways.
Maybe they’re not enough,
And most duly not returned,
But you make me want to take things slow,
You make me want to kiss you.
Every single time I see you.
I get so scared
I get so scared to look at you.
I imagine us fucking.
I imagine us making love.
I imagine our conversations, then vomit
inside because they’d be too fucking amazing
What if we weren’t compatible?
What happens if we’ll never know,
What happens if we aren’t.
You’re just the best part of this town.
And although it’s obvious how much I love you,
It’s also obvious, how much you don’t.
And yet, there is beauty in this rejection,
You have made me happier, without even touching
You have made me feel better, without even asking.
Yet, again, I have loved you too long.
