I cannot help...

I cannot help...

A Poem by Raja Anjana Kothapalli
"

A poem on one-sided love.

"

I cannot help the little smile that instinctively embellish the corners of my lips,
whenever your voice reaches my ears.

I cannot help the cherry red blossom that rushes onto the spread of my cheeks,
whenever your eyes catch mine staring at yours.

I cannot help the confusingly buzzing fuzziness that seeps into my head,
whenever your thoughts conquer my mind.

I cannot help the repeatedly fluttering butterflies in the pit of my stomach,
whenever your vibrant laugh echoes through wind.

I cannot help the sweet shuddering shivers that run along the length of my spine,
whenever your tingling skin innocently brushes mine.

But I also cannot help the conscious cowardice hindering the confession of my love,
whenever you unconsciously make me realize-
Your friendship is too valuable to risk it for love!
I love you my friend, but love you more as my friend!

I love the honesty with which you've ended the poem.. you describe how despite your surging passion for the other, you are in check with the reality of your world and like all are human to feel like a coward in love, as we all do sometime in life
Great work :)
