There’s this feeling I can’t quite explain
But it isn’t sadness or fear or pain
It’s like a lightning bolt straight through my mind
Making me so dizzy I’ve almost gone blind
My face is heating up and I’m stuttering my words
The poet in me is flustered and disturbed
There’s a name for this, fits like a glove
This feeling I’m feeling, I believe it’s called love.
Love is such a curious thing
It’s the rush of adrenaline that makes you swing
Over the top of the clouds of the sky
When you finally meet that girl or guy
Or the one who chooses not to abide
And throws gender into the tide
That one special person that only shows
When you’re capacity for connection grows
And you’ll give them everything you are
And they'll do the same for you.
I’m not one to believe in soulmates
But some time ago I found my fate
I’ve found someone to show my heart
But I don’t know where to start
They’re sweet like the taste of a lollipop
And I can barely speak because my mouth drops
Their words are powerful and full of meaning
I wish I could just say how I’m feeling
I guess I should just wish on a star
For my dream to come true.
A poet themselves, it amazes me
How their words come so easily
I can barely interact with those my age
Compared to me, they’re a mage
My heart is pounding, what do I do?
Nothing has prepared me for this.
Five before this, none the same
Anger, boredom, peer pressure, disdain,
And moving away to a land unknown
After all of those, I feel like I’ve grown
Grown to the point where this time
It’ll be different, it’ll be fine
This one may not last, that is true
But this is an opportunity I cannot miss
What if they don’t feel the same as me?
I guess I’ll have to just wait and see
My hands are shaking, my pen falls to the floor
The deepest parts of my heart are being explored
I can’t think like this, there’s a lot to lose
But I want to take the risk, cut the noose
That society has around my neck
Like a pirate captain upon the deck
Sailing over the sea called “adoration”
Searching for that romantic dedication
Waiting for the love that’s real
I’ll wait a little, see how it goes
Grow our friendship, achieve our goals
Then maybe, maybe I’ll be able to say how I feel.
