This Tension, It Kills Me - Poem by Rommel Filoteo

My unspoken attraction is enough to fill up volumes.
How can I get closer to you?
I am too shy to talk to,
In this moment, It’s feel safer to watch you
From a distance with no rejections.
You have taken up a part of my life.
You just build a residence in my soul
All I want is you so badly…
All I want is you to listen to me…
All I want is you to tell me that you want me…
Why I’m always not in my self whenever you speak.
My heart always rumbles every time I see you.
I take in the way you move, the way you talk,
The way you smell whenever you are around.
Dream to touch your face without a feel
I cannot believe it is real...
My eyes directed down when your gaze falls upon me,
That simple smile - I want so badly!
This tension, it kills me.
Every time I think of you
I can feel the butterflies fluttering deep inside me.
Maybe you do not notice the way I look at you;
Or maybe you could not see me
Nevertheless, when I look at you,
Nothing could turn my eyes away.
Moreover, someday soon I will wake
And will find my heart will not have to break.

    Maybe if you tell her what this beautiful heart is saying all over these poet pages? These poems are honest and true, but if you wait too long, looking is all you ever get?
    The face you see may be beautiful, but if you haven't talked to her, she is just a face... minds like a poet will not be happy with flat minds... I guess what I'm saying is, be careful of what you wish for.
    Enjoy your poetry always Rommel! You have a heart full of love.

    Why not show her this open, honest poem? You might be surprised how she may react. Sometimes you can let go of your own shyness by pretending the woman you want is as shy as you are. A bitter sweet poem about the anguish of desire. love, Allie xxxx (Report) Reply

    Rommel - Love is so unpredictable, she may feel the same way. If not, you'll finally know the truth, and can move on for the special one who is waiting for you.

    Best wishes - Cheryl
