if i had the guts by Nadia Nelson
Is there ever a wrong reason to love?
If there is, someone tell me quick
Before I’m in over my head
Where was I?
I can’t remember.
I looked at you and my mind went blank.
Are we too alike?
They say opposites attract.
If that’s so, then we must be different.
I know what my friends think
I have an inkling of how I feel
But don’t know for sure
All I know is talking to you is my favorite part of the day,
Though it doesn’t happen very much these days.
We’re in different stages of life.
I can’t figure out the color of your eyes…
I hope you don’t mind that I gaze into them until I do.
I don’t want to be creepy,
I just want to know you.
So many questions
I don’t even know your favorite color.
It’s probably blue.
Spirit animal? Favorite place? Favorite food?
I want to know.
Sometimes I wish something would happen, but
What? I don’t know.
I like to think the Universe/God knows what’s up and whatever happens will.
Just let me be in your world
So that’s me.
What about you?
