I thought you were a silly crush, just old feelings resurfacing, taking a gulp of oxygen before diving under never to be found. And then we hung out. Several times. I don't know what you thought of them but I couldn't stop thinking about them. About you. I'm jumping to all these conclusions but I can't help it. It's different with you. We're not just friends. We can't be. I can't be the only one feeling these feelings, I just can't. You told me you liked my dress, and that it really suited me. I told you I liked those glasses, I wasn't lying when I said you looked good in them.
We walked around for a while, sometimes I caught you looking at me and sometimes you caught me. You said the sweetest things and caught me off guard that I didn't even know I was falling. Us hanging out wasn't completely out of the ordinary I suppose but when you indirectly asked me to the movies I don't think that was ordinary. That wasn't normal. Do you like me? Why would you? You could do so much better though. I don't know why you want to hang out with me. I don't know what you see. I'm just a broken girl pretending to stay together but around you I can't seem to hold all my pieces up. Your eyes are like mirrors reflecting what you see in me and sometimes it scares me to even think that one day you might just know too much and pick up and leave. We've been friends for such a long time but there's something different about it this time round. But until you spell it out I'll keep savouring each of the moments as they come. Holding it closer and closer to my heart. I'm not ready to leave my heart on my sleeve, God knows I already tried it once.
