Confession To A Girl - Poem by Charlie F. Kane
I’m writing to you now
From the comfort of my laptop.
It’s almost 11 and I could do
With a decent nights sleep,
But I can’t stop thinking about you.
I’m sorry to say that this is how I feel,
But I think you might just be the girl for me,
Because I have seen so many things
About you I cannot help but like.
I like the way you laugh and joke,
And I like the way you do not care
What anybody else thinks,
And I like so much more,
All that I have gathered in the time I have known you.
I have to say that I am quite sure
That you absolutely do not feel the same way.
I have been told that maybe it’s just
A bunch of insecurities that make me feel this way,
And it makes me sad.
I know that any chance I take
Will likely end in failure.
My friends think I’m acting crazy,
But they haven’t seen
The ‘Oh no, it’s the crazed poet’ look you give me.
I know I’m sounding like I’m a Leonard Cohen record,
But this is just how I’m feeling,
And I write this to you even though it is highly likely
That you will never, ever read it,
But I felt like this needed to be said.
I just want to be the guy for you,
I want to make you happy,
Because that’s just what I’d like to do.
I’m sorry if you do not understand
What I have said as I am tired
And it’s been a long day,
But I wanted just to express that I’m feeling this way.
Maybe I’ll see you some other day.
