I want you to know how I feel. I need you to know how I feel, cos its driving me crazy. Even trying to find the right words is difficult, because I don’t know where to start and I don’t know where the feelings end. I’m not sure how strong my feelings are, and then when I stop to consider them, I wonder whether they’re even genuine.
However, I think they have to be. Because there is no reason for me to feel this aching sadness, simply because I don’t know if you feel for me. There is no need for me to get upset over being unable to tell you how I feel. I shouldn’t miss you this much or want to talk to you almost everyday. Why have I sat wondering what’s going on with her or if she is your girlfriend? In all honesty, I should feel no way about us not being together and just being friends.
I wish it was that easy – that I could lock my feelings away and toss them to the bottom of the sea, never to be felt again. I don’t want to feel this way about you. You’re my friend and a close friend at that; losing you does not bear thinking about. When life feels bad, it’s you I want to talk to. I want to share my joys with you. Music is our language; so many songs make me think of you – if you only knew how many songs I’ve sent, loosely trying to let on how I feel about you.
Yet I don’t think its the same on your end – I’m not sure you want to let me in. Although don’t get me wrong, you’ve shared some beautiful things and I’ve valued our conversations more than you will ever know. I just don’t think you realise how much I want to be there for you, how much I am there for you, and I want to hear anything you have to say.
You might ask when my feelings for you began, but I honestly have no idea. I know they’ve been there for a while, but I’ve tried my hardest to ignore or suppress them, to no avail it would seem. All I know is that you were able to capture my heart with your caring nature, maturity and musical romanticism; your humour, intelligence and wisdom. Your eyes drew me in to your haunting beauty – beautiful eyes that somehow see beauty in me.
I love the way you see me; I wish I could see myself the same way that you do. I don’t know if that will ever be the case though, as you see this truly beautiful, strong, amazing woman, which I cannot understand. But then again, I can tell that you don’t fully see yourself the way I see you.
What makes my feelings for you even more frustrating is that they persist, even when you hurt me last year and left my heart feeling bruised. You came across like so many others before you and it effected our bond in a way – I put up walls and tried to create some distance, which hasn’t fully gone away. Yet those feelings are still there and you won’t get at of my head, as sickening as it is.
I want to be close to you and have your arms wrapped around me. I want to look up into those big, beautiful brown eyes that warm my heart and put a smile on my face. I want to walk with you hand in hand, talking about our lives. I want to be able to kiss you, while we listen to the music we love so much. Simply put, I want to be with you… but I can’t and that’s just the way it is. You’re out of reach and you most likely don’t feel the same. That’s just the way my life is and I’m gonna have to deal with that.
However, I had to let you know how I feel, because it was tearing my up inside and I couldn’t take it anymore. I hope we can stay friends, because I love you with all my heart and I can’t lose you. You’ve become such a special person in my life and I hope you know that.
