I'm still in-love with her.
Just don't know what to say,
and i don't know whether
she's straight or gay.
I do know, however, the
nature of my feelings.
I also acknowlege the
way she reads my mind.
We used to talk about it-
The way she always knows,
but that was when
she gave in...for only a moment.
And like the elephant,
I will never forget that
This isn't meant to be a poem.
More like a stream of consciousness,
something I learned how to do the
first time I realized I was attracted
to a woman.
Only she was my teacher
and I was an optimist...
and now my life has taken another
I can see why hopes are shattered sometimes.
How silly I know I've been...when I wouldn't
let myself fall for this one.
How I held on to nothing for too long.
And then she rescued me from my insanity.
I can still taste the lips I only
look at now.
But I can't let things get me down.
I can't give in to the frown...
Not when I can still see her smile.
