I admire everything about you.
You are beautiful.
You are smart.
You are open minded.
You have one of the only truly free spirits i know.
You are one of my only true friends.
You critique my work.
You help me find ways to better myself.
You have helped bring out the best in me.
You stay up and talk to me.
You listen to me.
You are there for me.
You encourage me.
You inspire me.
I love you.

I've been thinking about writing this for a week or two, and whatever day it is now, i've finally decided I'm ready to send it. I still don't know when I'll send it to you. I've thought about you every single day since October of Freshman Year, be it in my house, while running a scenic, or in a canoe in Minnesota. I doubt it's you actually reading this now, but I hope to God it is. Especially now, you seem more troubled than before. I've gotten mixed messages from you. I'm pretty sure you know how I feel about you, although maybe not to the full extent that I do, and you haven't said anything about it, positive or negative. We've been great friends so far, and I wish we could be more together, but I respect you and your opinion, and want you to be happy above all else. I don't want to make you feel pressured or uncomfortable, and I don't want to screw up the friendship we do have together. Does it make me insane or sane to have not told you that I love you?

I completely get this. Kudos to you for being willing to express your true feelings towards her. I se its been awhile since you wrote this. I hope things are good between you both; still friends at least if nothing more.

I know what its like to love someone and not be sure if they'll reciprocate in like manner. Best of luck to you! :)

So beautiful :heart: I truly hope that whoever this is meant for does get to read it. And for the record, there is no sanity where love is involved. Love is the most beautiful form of insanity.

I like how it starts off with the subject I at the beginning and the end. While in between is the subject you.

Thanks for the feedback, much appreciated. Actually started off writing it as an email to someone, not a poem. I was saying all the things about her, then in summary how that makes me feel about her, that way she would know why love her and that I actually do, and that I'm not just saying it in the moment or as a fake or something like that. Noticed afterwards the way it linked back up like that, a kind of poetic feel to the structure, so decided to put it on here.

You'll send it when your heart feels it has reached it's limit. And that could be any limit. Believe me, I study the heart and mind for a reason and I know the logic and connection between both to an extent. And who knows, it could be her or it could be someone else. Regardless, best wishes to you.

Thanks. And don't worry, I know things may or may not work out. I'm not completely dillusional with love for her, I'm not saying we're absolutely destined to be together or something of that sort. I've just decided to write out how I see her and feel about her, in the way I that have for some time now.

Describes exactly how I feel. Including and almost especially the writing on the bottom as mentioned by Gigerz.

Thanks for commenting, not many people do. And I find it interesting that the people who've commented like the bottom description as much the poem itself.

And most of this is copied and pasted over. The entire top poem and the first part of the description up until "I doubt it's you actually reading this now..." are currently in my email saved as a draft that I'll hopefully someday actually send.

Someday should be soon. Life is short, I've realized this more than ever lately.
I dunno, but if I was in your shoes knowing what I've gone through now, I'd send it soon.

I'd like someday to be soon. It'll probably be sometime when I'm up between 1 and 3 in the morning, in the state of mind I described in the last few lines of this [link] and decide I should just do it.
