The inevitable

The inevitable

A Poem by Steve

A man approaches his friend with the news that he loves her.

Words! So many words! I was finally able to say
Nearly able to keep my emotions at bay

'What a relief!' I thought as my words flowed and flowed
I had gone to her private room Her humble abode

I feared her response Her reaction to my heart
But she stayed true to form Her sweetness overflowing

Breathing and composure A constant battle
However, I charged ahead Pedal to the medal

I needed her to know Of my thoughts and feelings
Waiting any longer would have been oh so unappealing

You told me of your situation Very confusing
I confessed to you my own Not any less heartaching

Where do we go from here I asked so tenderly
You told me of our (limited) options Not wanting to hurt me

I left you right after My feelings now expressed
With all my romantic words You probably felt pressed

Sleep was difficult to get Later on that night
I so hoped you wanted me too, or that you just might

Our next steps are so unclear, not at all obvious
Although my emotions are spent Our future is still ambiguous

Our spending the next day together, was strange yet wonderful
You went back to being yourself How so very loveable

I like this Steve-O. It seems very 'you'. Sometimes you just got to leap, despite not knowing where you'll land.

Sometimes life tries to block loves path and yet sometimes when it's so intense and the feelings won't go away theres nothing more you can do then to surrender to the the blocks and move forward in love.. :) xx I enjoyed reading this and you penned your feelings well :) x
