Unless You Say It Can'T Be True - Poem by Russell Nero

How do I begin this
I'm too rusty, and still too inexperienced
I'm only good at middle lines
but I'm in the middle of trouble
I think I'm in love...
I know, I know
It sounds like I'm just repeating the same old story
but please just hear me out
I don't know what to do
I'm a little scared, justly terrified
What if I'm wrong
and it's just a one-sided affair
What if I'm wrong
and I get my hopes up
to have them dashed
Or I royally mess up and become the king of idiocy
I mean she's...she's the entire opposite of me
but she's everything to me
I can talk to her about any and everything
She's incapable of hate
with a real smile painted across her face always
my living Mona Lisa
She's love elated while I'm out-dated
She makes my brain swirl with new possibilities
new memories, new ideas
She, she makes me feel like my head is feel weightless
my heart on fire
oh man do I want to have her so close to me
so I can feel her lips upon mine
so I can just hold her in my arms
call her my love, my forever after
call her the names of the ones I wasted
on the loves that never stayed
but she's stuck on the west coast
and I'm a native to the south
Maybe it's for the best
I don't want to ruin things
I don't want her to leave me
but I feel like I'm going insane
she's always on the brain
I can hardly spend a day without smiling at her pretty face
a framed picture of her in my daydreams
but I don't want to make a move
cause I know how I get when I say I love someone
yet this time...
What if I'm right
but...what if I'm wrong again
Well I promised her
she could read this
It's brief but this is what is inside my head
that I'm in trouble
that I'm losing it
that I'm a kid across the state
hopeless
hopeless but in love with
...you
unless you say it cant be true...
