Ode To The Crush - Poem by Brad Jacole Sieths

I met you at an improv show,
thought it was a normal day, but that wasn’t so
You came in, out of the blue
I liked you at first sight, that much is true

You were better at every game
made me feel almost lame
heard we were on the same team
and I started to beam

So many times I wanted to tell you
people telling me you were someone I hardly knew
I disregarded their hateful comments
started coming up with beautiful sentiments

Started thinking about saying my feelings aloud
unrealistic scenarios like on a cloud in front of a crowd
I don’t know I just had to know what you’d say
hoping for that slim chance of the answer being “okay”

After a quick rethinking I realized it might hurt the team
I didn’t want a simple thing to create a seam
perhaps not telling you was the best thing to do
or maybe one day I’ll look back to today and rue.

I can’t say which one hurt more,
telling you or trying to ignore
if my feeling continue to linger
maybe I’ll have to become a singer

Just to be able to release some of this pressure
all of what is making me so insecure
I can’t say anything yet about regrets
but I can safely say everything about my frets

If you ever see this badly written rhyme
perhaps you’ll consider it for some time
think about who was on the team, “Monkey”
then one other person who happens to be me

    reading this badly written rhyme, reminds me of another Monkey I almost met in another far off sublime time. Sort out that first line of the last verse for me, please! lol

    I love the title, and the name rings a bell!

    Smiling at you
