This poem reveals the feelings of an aromantic person.

"I have feelings for you."

It did not surprise me.

I always knew before 

The confession.

 

My eyes placed upon them

As they fidget and 

Gather courage. I already

Know the secret.

 

Though my heart never

Jumps with excitement.

How pitiful they look!

Hoping for false light.

 

Praying I get be 

Like others. But

Can't get to change

The loss of affection.

 

"His beautiful," "They would be great."

"What if they betray me?"

"You never know"." Humans

Are not constat".

 

The flowers, the beautiful

dinners and exciting stories.

"why can I not get them

to excite me?."

 

Jim said I would die alone.

But I would prefer that, then the burden

of someone else's feelings, 

That I can not reflect on.
