Falling in Love Poem

I am a high school student out of Bridgetown California and I like to express myself though art and this is a poem that I wrote explaining how hard it is to show the feelings you have for someone that you really care about. This poem is for someone because I wanted them to know that they are precious to me.

Hidden Feelings

© Matthew Murphy
Hiding the feelings that grow ever so stronger
the time that we are apart feels even longer
the clock ticks and the cold breeze flows
as for me I know where my heart glows
covering the smile you cause me to make
it is this nervousness that I must break
these hidden feelings I must hide no more
as I walk up the path that leads to your door
ringing the bell hearing the chime
I'm not going to let you go this time
building the courage admitting how I feel
is this a dream or is this actually real
my heart is pounding beating out of my chest
because you my love is life's big test

    I've been in love with my best friend for a while. We would always hang out at school during the school year or play together outside. We'd flirt a little and play around, but I could never tell him how I feel. The stuff we did he claimed was a dare. I believed him because boys are immature like that. Just like regular friends we'd have our good and bad times but I could never stay mad at him. Well summers come and he hasn't really talked to me. I'd text him then he wouldn't text back. Finally when he did he said he'd lost his phone. I know he's lying and our friendship is falling apart by the second. The thing is for some reason I feel like I should be mad at him or just forget about him and move on. But I just can't seem to let go. I think him about all the time, day and night. I wonder if he's doing the same. My feelings are jumbled. I'm not sure what he would do if I told him the truth. The way he's ignoring me I feel dumb and I don't have the courage to tell him the truth.

    sounds like infatuation to me but certainly not love.
    what you describe is not love but you are a child.
    wait a few years

    I've been friends with a guy for about 3 years now, we see each other every day at school, I had a crush on him for like a week in year 7 but he didn't really notice me but then all of a sudden he said he liked me, then 3 months later said he loved me, but now I find myself smiling and blushing when he smiles at me, I'm always thinking of him and I think I'm slowly falling for him

    It was a new start for me . I begin 6th grade and go to a new afterschool. After my first classes in middle school, I saw him. I kept thinking to myself “Do I love him?” Its almost 2 months now ( currently its 10/28/2012) and right as I type I'm thinking about him... I wonder Does he feel the way I do? Everyday/Everytime I see him makes my heart pound, and when I'm near him I do the most stupidest things yet. Two of my friends help me try to make him like me. Justin , if you are reading this know that I love you with all my heart.....

    I love a boy we were just friends then my other friend told him I liked him so he came down to play with me. We went to his house and had our first kiss and now we're boyfriend and girlfriend. We go out every day so I told on my friends friend a girl andI told my friends girlfriend that he kissed me.
