Primrose

I don’t understand you

I don’t understand
I like you

You act like you
Like me

I flirt with you
You flirt with me

The teasing
The looks
It shows

With a group of friends
We drift closer
To each other

An invisible force
Brings us together

And for a few short hours
Nothing matters to me
But you

My worries slowly slip away
For you are wrapped up
In my thoughts

For once
I live in the moment
Feeling it’s happiness
Surround me

Even when I’m not looking
At you
You’re still all
I’m focused on

A faint smile graces my lips
As I watch you
From the corner of my eye

You look so happy
So free
Like it’s where you’re meant
To be

I’ve never felt so like myself before
You bring out a different side of me
A braver, bolder side

I don’t understand
How you did that

You draw words out of me
Just being there
Persuaded me
To tell things I don’t often tell

You listen in a way
That really truly makes me feel
Heard

You understand me
And I don’t know how

You mean so much to me
Yet I’ve known you
For so little time

You’re special to me
Too much so

I’ve grown attached to you
Far to fast
Too much
In too little time
And I know
It’ll hurt

But talking to you
Is like a drug
Your presence is addicting

And I don’t want to lose you
But one day I will

I just hope
You don’t break my heart

I don’t understand
I like you

You act like you
Like me

I flirt with you
You flirt with me

The teasing
The looks
It shows

I don’t understand
