This is a poem I thought of and wrote while in bed at 3:50 am. Usually I wake up early for school but I had this certain feeling of warmth and goodness inside me I had the inspiration to write this through a message on May 17th.

At times like this I'd love to stay,

In your bed is where I'll lay.

Cuddling throughout the night

Admiring you within my sight.


Although we barely hang, you see

You're someone very dear to me

This is how I truly feel

I appreciate that you buy me meals


You're so very sweet and kind

You're always on my freaken mind

I sometimes wish to take you out 

Because it causes me to doubt


But times like now feel very nice

I love how you're so concise

Right now I feel so warm inside

I hope to be one you could confide [in]


I sometimes doubt about where I stand

And think about where we might land

It causes me to be depressed

and kinda always gets me stressed.


However, those bad times haven't come up as much

I'm becoming more confident as I see such

This is helping me realize a lot

How foolish I was, two years ago, on the dot.


It's very different going on dates with specifically you

But in a beautiful way, I hope you think so too.

Enough about me let's end it with you

You're so amazing in all that you do.

I love the way you rhyme! Also, I love the sincerity and vulnerability of your words. This poem is universal enough to appeal to people's emotions, but at the same time it feels like it's very personal to you. I like that it sounds like a confessional, and I absolutely love the musicality of your lines! Great job!
