Here’s another one I wrote in high school. I told you, I was deeply infatuated with someone during this period. Let me just tell you now that whatever feelings I had then, they didn’t go anywhere other than the pages of my notebooks, transformed into works of poetry. If there was one good thing that came about, it was that I wrote so many poems because of these unrequited feelings that I had.
Light up my life, and leave me;
Then maybe I wouldn’t miss you.
But it’s only you I need to see,
But maybe you don’t feel that way too.
Walk into my life, and hurt me.
I’ll know if it’s you I really love.
But maybe we aren’t meant to be.
Maybe you’re someone I can’t have.
Change my life, and break my heart.
Maybe lonely nights won’t make me cry.
Maybe I’d be used to us being apart.
But I know I wont; I don’t know why.
Come into my life, and break me,
Just so I’d know if I love you.
Maybe you’re not the one for me,
But maybe deep down you love me too.
Breathe into my life and disappear.
Maybe I wouldn’t look for you.
But I will because I need to have you near,
And because I just love you so true.
