I Like You

I Like You

A Poem by Blue Ivory

I feel I'm letting nature down
When I say I've fallen in love with you
The universe trusted me with a friend
Did it think I was mature enough to handle it?

I stand in front of the mirror
And picture your face
I say, "I don't like you"
So I don't get stuck at 3am
Thinking of you

Is it just the onlooker's opinion
Messing with my head?
Would I not be confused
If they never said a word?

Just because you said I'm worth it
I won't like you
You're a guy who's actually worth it
So I'll do you a favor and not like you

You actually make a girl like ME feel beautiful
So I know you deserve a lot better than that

I want to keep this as the unspoken truth
One that never slips out
Cuz I feel ridiculous at the mere thought
Of me confessing to you.

I'll save you the trouble of rejecting
Or even considering

It's funny. The first time I heard my cousin say
"Someday, you'll meet a guy you KNOW is right for you. You'll fall in love with him. But you'll never be able to tell him."
I laughed out loud. It was the dumbest thing I ever heard!

Now I think, I'm in trouble. My next realization,
This is a beautiful thing that's happening here.
And right now, I'd like to keep it that way:

A secret, that is.

The secret that I love you.

I always knew my day would light up at the presence of my perfect guy.

Or do I just really enjoy your company?

I'm embarrassed. So I'm sorry, but I like you.

I really like this poem. It opens you and shows you. In so doing it opens the reader to experience the same angst if only through memories. Well done.

This is truly beautiful!...the secret withheld...(oh, if only you can say it!!)
The fear of unraveling if you confessed "love", is felt in this piece. I love how you have built layers of emotion in this write. Lovely work!

I can't tell you how much I appreciate this work. Many years ago I knew a young woman who always had the dream that someone would come to love her. Then one day she simply asked, "Is it you?" Maybe the connection between your words and that old memory draws me to this but there is a distinct quality here that has to be recognized and enjoyed.

Awww thanks so much for liking it!
What a great write! We make romance so complicated, simple communication becomes such a heavy stone.
