I Think You Know

I thought I wasn't going to show it to you, but I did,

And now you know how I have felt about you since you were a kid.

After all of this time, maybe now you can finally see,

Everything that I have went through since the time that you have known me.

I wasn't going to send it to you, but I decided to just give it a shot,

Because I really thought you were going to read it without giving it a second thought.

But curiosity got the best of you, and you continued to ask,

And I feel like now, there is no trying to hide behind a mask.

I think you keep asking because you already know,

That after all this time, I have not been able to let you go.

So I put my heart out there, and laid it out for the whole world to see,

That I am still wishing that you will end up with me.

I want to tell you the truth, but I know it will ruin everything,

Because there is so much joy, yet such a mess that it could bring.

But why do you keep asking? Why do you want to know so bad?

And I had to admit it, but deep down, it is making me glad.

Maybe I need to confess it because you have finally realized it to be true,

That it should end up being me and you.

It is funny to finally see the roles reversed,

Because this whole time, I thought me and you to be cursed.

That I was in love with someone who would never love me back,

And I could feel myself starting to crack.

You destroyed me for so long, I don't think I could do it again,

But maybe, this was what you needed to finally see me as more than just a friend.
