I’m torn up inside
Confused but I see the light in a moment
I told her how I feel about getting to know each other better
She doesn’t feel the same way though
Then I felt the darkness

I feel disappointed but I also feel I shouldn’t Pursue her.
No, not yet.
I would feel clingy. I’m not clingy.

Never should I try or strive but her qualities attract me.
She brushes them off like they are nothing but she is a treasure in that moment of light.

I really do think she’s better than the rest.
Clearly she is taken for good reasons and
I wish her the best!

There’s nothing I can do except to hear back from her someday when she is more free.
But what if her heart is broken where she doesn’t want another?
I’m torn... I wish her the best.
I wonder if she will remember me in that time of hurt if it comes.
I wonder if she would look for a friend to comfort her.
I’m here for her.
Sounds lame but I am.
I would like to know her better in her time of hurt so I can pick up her unhappy ness and whirl her up and say let me show you my heart.
It has been waiting for someone like you.
