If you can't let me tell you...

You are what I want, Us is what I want.

That's something I try to hide, even from myself.

But I expose myself in every smile. 

I think it's because for you I'll go the extra mile.

You know how to make me laugh.

You make my days orange & yellow

whenever they're gray & blue.


Unconsciously letting my guard down.

Letting you teach me to trust you.

You're as heartwarming as a bonfire

when it's a late & cold night.

And as "kool" as cookie dough ice-cream

in hot June summer late night.


In other words,

you have that coffee effect on me.

Getting me through the day & keeping me up at night.

Plus I have never met a guy who not only enjoys coffee as much as I do

but tea as well.


Hopes & Dreams...[sighs]

that out loud...I couldn't ever tell.


The author's comments:

I wrote this a while ago, I was planning on submitting this but I never did. This is about a special someone who I know will never be mine, not that I'm willing to admit that I want him to be <3 P.S. - It would mean a lot if you guys comment, like, etc.

P.S. I've to say, I love the way the colours and coffee and tea are used as symbols in this poem.🤍🤍🤍

@WEIRDCRITIC07 I definitely agree! Some of my work was posted this morning this poem is actually number two right now as I'm replying and number one is also my poem. I appreciate all your support

@francezfeelz Yup- totally relate to that... vulnerability is something that is really lacking in this generation. I think it's a drawback of this modern age of media, people have added up so many insecurities. Also, would love to see more of your work!

@WEIRDCRITIC07 Thank you so much for the support! And for the compliment on the poem and profile in general thank you so much, and yeah I mean I totally do belong in this generation but sometimes I feel like teens nowadays don't really take time to be vulnerable. To be honest, this poem was written about a small crush that I had before I got into a relationship later on with someone else, and welp things didn't go too well with that relationship and I'm still recouping from that so I felt kinda bad to post about old feelings but I loved where it ended up (:

I love it! A great way of creatively portraying this relationship. Your profile's amazing-- all this time I really thought I was the only one who felt out from their generation. Really loved reading your bio!
