Your love keeps me going.

But you have a girlfriend.

Even though you're not close,

She's still there.

Our friends don't approve of us together.

I suppose they're not our friends then.

But we continue to act like they are.

We still try to please them,

Even if it's at our expense.

Why can't life be like it was in 2nd grade?

Why can't I go up to you and say how I feel?

Without the fear or disapproval or scorn.

Sometimes I let the worry get to me.

It takes over my body

Nearly causing me to suffocate.

But you always come to the rescue.

Even if you're unaware of it.

You still don't know how much I love you, but

Your love keeps me going.
