Crushin' On Your Mind

A Chapter by Nix is typing...
"

Insomnia written poem about a guy who shall remain nameless

"
I won’t say who this poem’s about
But when he reads it, 
I think he’ll figure it out
He’s really smart, got a rough past,
Kinda like me
He likes to keep a secret identity
He and I share the same pains and sorrows
But we both hope for better tomorrows
His poetry draws me in
It touches the depths of my soul
His words stare into my eyes
His mind always on patrol
He’s really sweet
But I’m totally friend-zoned
Still, he’ll sit there an’ listen to my gripes ‘n’ moans
His heart teases me,
But his brain says “No!”
Tantalizing, 
Out of reach
For his mind, I beseech
I love his words
I love his intellect
Alas, he's forbidden territory
So I just sit here and introspect
Until he detects
I wore my broken heart 
On my sleeve
Please believe
I don't want you to leave
And cleave the heart of my shirt
Can't take more hurt
I might seem like a flirt
But I love so truly
It's unruly
And you just seem not to care

Thank you so much, MP!!
Connected. Some poets just do that to you. They draw you right in to their words and you savour them like a fine meal. Relatable work.

You are very welcome Nix :)
This is very sweet. It makes me nostalgic for my university days. If things don't work out with this person, I recommend hanging out at a university. Even if you don't attend the university, you can just walk onto campus, look at the bulletin boards, and find some fun ways to meet new people. Well, those days are byegone due to Covid, but perhaps we can do that sort of thing again someday.

Thank you for the collaboration credit, but I really only kicked you a couple of lines. Anyone that you like in this way must be a very lucky guy.

I know, but they were REALLY good, they might actually be like...the best lines in the poem.
I enjoyed this, I can feel how you do on many levels
"He likes to keep a secret identity
He and I share the same pains and sorrows
But we both hope for better tomorrows
His poetry draws me in"

I can understand here, there is so many emotions played into such few words
