Thirty-Six.

The way you speak
then turn away
you don't really care
what I have to say

The way you laugh
and hold her tight
your words echo in
my head at night

The way you scratch
and laugh and stretch
The way you act
like we're almost friends
The way you say
that you love God
The way I know
I'm not enough

The way you physically
can't be mean
I'll never know
your real feelings

The way you're busy
with life and things
but always find time
to talk to me

The look on your face
when I say your name
is why I wait for you
every day

The way you know
just what to do...

What if I...

said I liked you?
