i can only try

I’m sorry

I’ll never stop wanting you

as the days and weeks fly by

It’s foolish to feel this way

wanting to spill my heart out

I should have just said hi

What do I do? I ignore you

as we pass by each other

I cry myself to sleep

finally knowing loneliness

Like the back of my hand

as I slowly fall for you

I think about you on weekends

You are someone special

But then I realized

I didn’t love you

I’m sorry
