I could get a 33 on my ACT

Love is waking up and having the first person you think of being them.
Love is the person whose happiness you wish for at 11:11.
Love is the way you look at them and smile
Love is being more comfortable with someone than without them.
But sometimes love is none of those things.
Most times it isn’t love at first sight, it takes time.
Sometimes it’s someone you don’t want to fall in love with.
Sometimes it is.
Sometimes it’s the person you least expect it to be.
Sometimes it surprises you.
Love isn’t out of the blue,
And it usually doesn’t happen right away.
It could be an instant connection, but trust takes time to build.
Love takes effort.
You have to give all you have into it.
Sometimes you won’t get anything back.
Maybe that silence seems awkward.
Maybe it's not.
Maybe it's just empty space.
Maybe it's devoid of everything that could fill it.
Maybe it's just lacking sound.
Maybe the wanting to speak is still there.
Silence isn't always empty space.
I like who I am with you.
I like to laugh.
And I like your laugh.
I like being nerdy.
And I like how nerdy you are.
I like being happier
And I like seeing you happy.
I like being myself.
And I really like you.
Every time I try,
I get this feeling in my stomach.
Some say they're butterflies.
But if you would call them butterflies,
They must be malicious ones,
Swarming and making me feel sick.
They're trying to **** me,
Sometimes I think.
Maybe it's for the best.
Maybe the butterflies are right,
And I should stop trying
But I hope they aren't.
The sweetest butterflies,
The ones that flutter and glitter,
They come when I'm around you.
