I Want You To Be Mine... - Poem by phumudzo mapila

I think its time I become honest with with myself...
I think I have liked you all my life.
From the first time I saw you be, I got that warm feeling inside...
Like butter melting on hot toast.

Somehow I think you started caring about me
And I must say it really made me feel good
You became my bestfriend, even though I secretly liked you as more than a friend.
I'm sure you didnt want to take the chance
....incase it would complicate things.

But truth is...I think we'd be good for each other.Its clear for everyone to see.

Then you went away, started a new life, in a new city, made new friends
....and you met someone else that caught you eye, captivated your heart more than I.
Then you stopped caring about me...
As if I did not exist anymore.

I moved somewhere new started, new city, new friends, interesting people, new crushes that quickly faded away, chased all my dreams...
Just when I thought I almost have it all....

I saw you last saturday...and daydreamed of what could have been if we only gave each other a chance.

You held my hand, and I stopped breathing...
Think I am still inlove with you.
I dont want to put it out there...and pour my heart out
but I really hope you can see...what in my heartThat i desire to pursue a chilhood dream that I once let slip away
....I want you to be mine.....
