Driftwood

Hello everyone! I hope you all are having a great day! I am sharing with you all another original poem I wrote about mixed feelings towards someone. I hope you all enjoy reading this and please let me know if you want more posts like this one!

Driftwood

Why must I feel this way?

This feeling of lust, love, and spontaneous.

I can’t live carefree when I’m with you.

I have to live on edge.


I’m perfectly fine with not being in love.

I’m perfectly fine if you don’t feel the same way.

I’m perfectly fine with small talk conversations that light up my senses.

I’m perfectly fine with knowing that you will leave me soon.

But am I really perfectly fine?


Knowing I only have a certain amount of time, to make a move.

To engage with you.

To be with you.

To talk to you.

To understand you.


Time.

Something that we rely on.

But why does it have to go so fast?

I worry about it and what will happen next.

I worry about you and what you will do next.


I know that I am not the best human being out there.

I know that I have a lot of flaws and I accept that.

I know that I can be insecure, mean, and weird.

I know that I am me.

But I don’t know why you are you.


I want to learn about you.

I want to learn what your flaws are.

With all these “wants,” there is nothing more that I want is you.

I want to make it clear to you that I care for you.

I want to be a part of your life.


I tell myself of all time that like anything that you love, it takes time.

That saying, “if you really want something, to go get it.”

But I feel that I have gotten far with each step, but every time I feel that I get ahead, something comes and ruins it.

Maybe it’s not worth going the extra mile for you.

Maybe you would be better off without me.


But I still feel that I can make an impact on your life.

I still feel that I want to keep trying and pushing myself out of these comfort zones.

I still feel I am making an effort on you.

I still feel like I have a chance.

I still hope so I do.


These little things that you do, that light my body on fire.

From the close contact to the wise jokes to the deep conversations that are still a forever memory in my mind.

The way I am able to relax with you, but also still feel so nervous and scared of you is how I want to enjoy life with you.

The constant joy that those little moments bring you or the way your eyes light up when talking about something new.

There’s a burning passion that has drawn a flame to you and it’s not going out anytime soon.


Wherever life may take you,

Whether it’s with me or without me,

I would like you to know that you are important, you impact people’s lives, and you deserve the good things that will come your way.

You want to know why? Because

Every ocean has its darkest storms but will always find a light to the greatest beginnings.
