Crushing

Feelings. Happy, or confused?

 

Both but neither.

 

Growing pains, rolling around in bed, unable to fall asleep.

Time, new experiences, new mysteries; pleasure, pain, hurt.

 

Attraction, abetting your own fears, but caring not.

Holding hands, longing, boredom.

 

FEAR; living as a secret.

Longing, love, never a clear head.

 

anxious, anxious, anxious

 

Relief?

 

Momentary.

 

Noticing what you didn’t before, being too engrossed in feelings to know what is true.

hair? Hair.

 

Changing focus, seeing the best in those you like.

Liking those you can see the best of.

 

Responsibility, Reality.

 

Trapped, but living your own way,

Kissing him? Cussing.

 

Disappointment, motivation.

 

Anatomy, guidance, hope
