Do You Like Me?

So what’s the deal?
Tell me straight,
tell me true.
Do you like me
or am I just another girl to you?

You’re sending mixed messages.
I can’t comprehend.
What is it you want?
It to start?
This to end?

How can I tell
how you’re feeling inside?
If you see me around,
you might talk,
you might hide.

Have I fallen for you?
With you should I live?
Or do I just fall
for attention you give?

I can’t write the ending.
Who knows what’s in store?
All I can do is wonder;
wonder and wait,
and wonder some more.

    yeah, been there got the t-shirt
    burnt-it to a crisp, after
    tenderly caressed it, after - the after
    cherished its presence in my skeleton cupboard,
    after - the after: from salvaged nothingness, for what matters in the lessons, after...
    then resuscitated, for it to all start again, at that quintessential - new. New: Beginning
    (connected with this write so effortlessly, mainly due to your ease of wording, thank you for sharing)

      You will know
      By the fruit
      But don't wait for Harvest.
      Stand back
      Let the grass emerge
      But save those precious moments
      They are the gems of time.
