You're more beautiful
And more outstanding and bright
Than you'll ever know.

You're worth more than you'll know. Just a reminder.

a lollipop
sour and sweet
it was mine but I shared it with you
cheddar cheese chips on your tongue
you don't understand why i mutter and blush
or why i try to look away

it started raining
we wrestled for who should hold your umbrella
i won
u look cute with a pout
your mom came and i took your hoodie
cause i didn't bring one for myself
it smells a lot like you
should i tell her? i'm scared of what she might say...

I glance at you to see if you glance back
I can’t explain it

I caught you looking what a treat
But I peeked back to this sheet

Maybe you’re looking because I am
Am I just being absurd?

Your face is magnetic
A prism of bismuth or iron

But I barely know you
Barely an acquaintance

But I would like to get to know you better
If you can stand me
Umm... girls are pretty

Oh how I melt and stutter
Oh how I sputter and gush
Over girls
I just love them so, so much
Hair and faces
Ripe for pets and kisses
And loving caresses
Necks and chests
Oh how loving them is the best
******* and stomachs
Warm and soft
Beautiful and sweet
I love girls from their heads to their feet
Dark or light I don’t care
This heart of mine loves them beyond all compare
girls are awesome

youre like sweet coffee to me
youre  like sweet potato pie and dead leaves
youre like hot chocolate and winter freeze
youre like crisp cherries and blossoms on the breeze
youre like ice water and the ac blasting at 60 degrees
i see u in everything i see and everything i do
my world is permanently stained in a shade of u
wrote this after waking up to her voice but i wish i had gone to sleep by her side
