From Our Readers: A Poem For Someone Beyond My Reach
I can't remember since when did my heart danced in glee
It beats for a reason I can't explain
I created walls for it won't get out
But it did and found you without knowing.
There are times I thought you feel the same.
There I times I want to avoid you and run.
But I'm entangled from the thought of you.
I fell for you and I don't want you to know.
I never knew that I would like you.
And I'm sure you'll never like me.
But who knows the manifest destiny?
I don't know if I'm thinking right.
I am bound to stay like this
Confused, hurt even I know I shouldn't.
Who am I to get jealous?.
I'm just a merely friend of yours.
I don't want to keep it bottled up inside.
But I don't want to lose what we have.
Maybe I should just stop.
Stop listening to this foolish heart of mine.
You're the reason I want to forget.
You're the reason I want to stay.
Feels like heaven and hell are colliding
But what I have to do is to stay in between.
You're incredible and indescribable.
You're exceptional and I'm the opposite.
You're unreachable, beyond grasp.
You're so near yet you're so far.
