You were the greatest challenge and adventure I ever saw.
I didn't want to fall for you but you captured my mind...
Which lead to a spark in my heart.
Everytime I see the wounds you so fearlessly show me,
I should be afraid but it only makes me love you more.
For you are not perfect nor are you simple,
But you are real. The realist I've see in so long.
Your intentions are clear so I keep my mouth silent of my heart's desires.
But I can't help the way I fall into you when I hug you hello and goodbye.
I can't help that my heart skips a beat when you come up in conversation.
I can't help that I suffer in my silence
But I'd rather have a friendship than nothing at all.
Some days I think it's a cruel punishment that I should feel this way
For someone who would never be with me. Or love me as
I love you.
For I love you for your strength, for your dreams, for your smile,
For your conscience, your eyes, the love I know you could hold in your hear.
You are both my blessing and my curse. I know my heart has not turned cold and I can love deeply as well as unselfishly.
But my loyal, undying love is not returned. I am a piece of driftwood. You are the ocean. I float but only before I am crashed upon. -RSE
