I Sit There in My English Class

by Lori

I sit there in my English class
I try to pay attention but I'm swept away
I can only focus on your eyes of glass
Everyday I try to find something good to say

And getting nothing in return is such a pity
If only you would gaze at me
I know I'm not that pretty
And I know there's nothing much to see

Every moment of my day is booked for you
You could say I'm hooked
It's all so true

Everything about you is just like me
We have our own thoughts and are both strong minded
We argue about politics and the rights to be free
We consider the Peace Treaty and how people signed it
I can only hope we're meant to be

I can get you to talk or laugh anytime
I can pick you up when you're down
I'll stand with you even if it's a crime
And I'll hold your heart even though it's mine you found

I'll be the best thing you've ever had
I could never break your heart
Or have one to make you sad

As you can see,
I'll never leave your side
You can fill the other half of me
And share with me the pride

I don't want to scare you off
Or make you think I'm off my chain
And nothing I say is meant to scoff
But the way you make me feel is so insane

So everyday I'll sit there in my English class
Maybe just one day you will see
You'll realize ,I too, have eyes of glass
And just maybe fall for me

Hay love, aah that was so beautiful. I loved it. what a lovely poem which expressed your true emotions of how you feel and gave the reader such beautiful images of love.
