Michiganne's Letter Michiganne Is A Name Here Not A Place - Poem by i am not crazy

It’s another day, another sunset
Your mesmerizing eyes meet mine again
I wonder now if you feel the same whenever our eyes met
And if you knew what’s hard to let you know

Here I am, waiting once more
Writing this letter that’ll soon reach you
Opportunity has opened up and closed its door
But how come there’s still telling of what I should do?

Now, a Wednesday, I desperately look at you as always
Are my eyes the closest things which can get to you?
Do I have to do as I’m doing for the past few days?
And when will I get the nerve to say what I feel for you?

So there is hope
But is there a chance?
It’s as if hope is an exit
That suddenly fades away each time you glance

My heart thumps and jumps whenever you pass by
Yet it feels so warm and whole
But it’s this heart that drew me in to lie
About the things I say to whoever doesn’t know

Every time I sit so close to you
I notice how you speak, how you smile, how you are day by day
I wonder if you’d even look at me
When I decide to leave and walk away

I keep on waiting but I never run impatient
I feel desperate yet I desire
I feel so endangered when things are actually prudent
And as heavy and worried as though my heart was on fire

How can people write so many songs of which I can relate to?
And authors fill books with stories like mine
I grab a pen and starts writing yet it’s my emotions who speak
Who would dare me write that I am completely fine

But when, when, how long do I have to conceive?
If you read what I write would that change anything?
It may add to the pain that I already receive
Yet, it may be the one that’ll make us something

And when do I step forward?
When should you know?
That I’m already haggard
Just trying to let it show

Should there be dates set for every move I’ll do
Just to make things flow without mistake
Yet things will turn out to be so imperfect?
Giving my heart a reason to break

This is where I should stop and fold this paper into three
This is also where I’ll admit what you are to me
Oh my dear, the one in my mind cherished by my thoughts
How I’d wish I had a tape recorder every time you speak
Bring a camera and capture all of your smiles
Seat right beside you whenever you feel meek
And make you listen to what I do say
You’re reading my letter so mark this very day
The girl who sat so close to you will now fade away
Now that you know I can never go nearer
Or look at your shimmering eyes and watch them glitter
I can now only reminisce with memories to stand by
Just wanted to let you know
I love you and goodbye
