Secret Admirer - Poem by Lee Degnan

I know I'm not supposed to be here
but listen if you will
It's as if I cannot think clear
life's a bitter pill
Endless days and sleepless nights
completely robbed of sleep
those times it's you in my thoughts
my secret that I keep
mesmerized by eyes seducing me
by no fault of your own
But I'll be damned if I can ever be
trusted on my own
if there was one day you might
ever feel the same
chances are it would probably incite
the utmost dangerous game
I've tried and I've failed to
let these feelings go
but seeing as I've come to you
I've let my feelings show
luckily you didn't notice this
you are not to blame
this girl who'll eternally imagine your kiss
remember not my name

    Oh, i love how you've crafted this one. There's the tinge of longing, a certain sadness, yet a mystery. Fantastic job!
    I think admiring someone is the closest we ever get to love, ie if the other person dosen't love you back.
