Childish - Poem by Fallen Too Far

It would be childish to tell you I hang on your every word
As if it were the life line to my sinking body
It would be childish to tell you I love you
Cuz those words are so overplayed
In my mind. Like a broken record, persistent in it's emotion
Sickeningly redundant
And just not enough to evoke my heart onto this paper
It would be childish to say that I am hopelessly addicted
Like a kid to his candy, or a girl to her phone
Or possibly (very likely indeed)
A dealer to his drugs, but more importantly the release that they bring
Even if it's for only a moment
Because, childish as it is, you are my release from everything
The sunshine through my clouds
The hope in my hopeless
Aimless wanderings
And it would be perfectly childish for me to say
That you have made me happier than I have felt in my life
I can get through my bad days, no matter what
Because I know that you care
And i love you
I love your smile and your words
And your very You.
I can never get enough of it
And every morning I wake up hoping I can give you something
To show you how much you mean to me.
But I can never show you my heart, in it's full appreciation

I am, after all, a child.
