Admit

by, Cassandra

I must admit;
you took me by surprise,
because despite all those
pretty words I write,
I haven't been waiting
to be staring in your eyes.

I've been just fine.

I must admit;
you scare me just a bit,
because despite all those
heartfelt words I write,
I don't have the courage
to say this to your face.

I haven't been alright.

I must admit;
you take my breath away,
because despite all those
pretty words I write,
I haven't ever felt
anything like this before.

I've been just fine.

I must admit;
I hate you just a little bit,
because despite all those
heartfelt words I write,
I never managed to capture
your character quite right.

I haven't been alright.
