Smitten Child - Poem by Carolyn Vuletic

I feel like a smitten kid
Like a stupid child playing kissing catches at school
Why do I stare at you when you sleep?
I would never tell you though
Alot happens in a decade, and that is the one up you have on me
I feel so young
I am so young

I, m smitten, and feel silly
I, d never tell you how I feel
That would mean you have won
Why do I shine when I think of you, stupid thoughts in my head

If you liked me we could run away together
Just you and me, live away on a special place
No one would find us, or atleast look
We wouldnt need anyone else

See, stupid thoughts in my stupid head
Maybe I should tell you this
Maybe I shouldn't drink so much
I'd like to know you without a hangover
Maybe...
