What I Feel For You - Poem by Jai Wadams

I think I’m in love. With you.
It’s hard to say but I have to.
It’s your smile, your voice, your attitude.
We had our friendly feuds. It was those too.
We teased, we insulted, it was nothing real.
But it was cool.

That year passed and I loved you still.
Our playful fights made me smile and the same for you.
I saw you in the halls but you never saw me.
I stayed quiet when we passed to see if you noticed.
I doubt you did.

I almost asked you but never did.
Your friends would have laughed or scoffed.
My friends joked but didn’t like you.
I wavered back and forth with my feelings for you.
I told myself it wasn’t true.
It was just how you looked, how you could make me smile.
But that was what made me realize.

But now you’re gone, I never got the chance to really know.
Probably never will, to know what you think or how you feel.
I see your picture and it feels so good but hurts so much.
I can see you again but not in life.

You won’t come back, I know that’s true.
Why do I keep waiting for someone I’ll never see again?
Why do I keep wishing for something that will never come to pass?
How do I even know if what I feel is true?

So read these words and know I speak my heart.
I know I’m crazy but so are you.
If this is a joke, know it’s not on you, I’m just kidding myself.
But there might come a day where this comes true.
So know this now: I know my heart is true and this feeling inside,
It’s what I feel for you.
