Old Friend - Poem by Shadrach Knight

I don’t know if I should say it
Say what I feel
But each night I sit at my desk thinking of you

I draw this beautiful wonderful girl
and I lie to myself and my heart
saying it’s not you

As I push by in class ignoring my work
thinking of what I would do if you loved me
I would do something stupid

I fail the test
I just can’t get you out of my head
But if I had you I would never hurt you or make you sad

I would talk and listen to you
I would tell you the truth of what I would do if I had you

I would hold you and say
I will never let you fall but if I fail and you do
I will always catch you
So if by a small impossible chances that one day even if for one day

That's what I would do
Nothing else but hold you in my arms and stroke your hair
And if all goes right share a single kiss

No more no less

The fact I even think this scares me.
Because if you read this you will know.
I'm sorry but it's true.
