This is a poem I wrote about the guy I like who thinks I'm invisible. It was inspired by the song "I'd Lie" by Taylor Swift.
Here are the lyrics to "I'd Lie":
I don’t think that passenger seat
Has ever looked this good to me
He tells me about his night
And I count the colors in his eyes
He’ll never fall in love he swears
As he runs his fingers through his hair
I’m laughing cause I hope he's wrong
I don't think it ever crossed his mind
He tells a joke I fake a smile
That I know all his favorite songs
And..
[chorus:]
I could tell you his favorite color's green
He loves to argue, born on the seventeenth
His sister's beautiful, he has his father’s eyes
And if you asked me if I love him,
I’d lie

He looks around the room
Innocently overlooks the truth
Shouldn’t a light go on?
Doesn’t he know that I’ve had him memorized for so long?
He sees everything black and white
Never let nobody see him cry
I don’t let nobody see me wishing he was mine
[chorus]
He stands there then walks away
My god if I could only say
I’m holding every breath for you...

He’d never tell you but he can play guitar
I think he can see through everything
But my heart
First thought when I wake up is
My god he’s beautiful
So I put on my make up
And pray for a miracle

Yes I could tell you his favorite color's green
He loves to argue oh and it kills me
His sisters beautiful he has his father’s eyes
And if you asked me if I love him
If you asked me if I love him
I’d lie

I may not know how many colors are in his eyes

I may not know all his favorite songs

I may not know his favorite color

I may not know if he loves to argue

I may not know when he was born

I don’t know if he has his father’s eyes

The only thing I know is, in my mind, the most important thing

All I know, is that I love him and can’t live without him

But if you asked me if I loved him, I’d lie


 
 

I can’t tell him I hold my breath when he walks by

I can’t tell you whether he can play guitar

My first thought when I wake up is my God he’s beautiful

I pray for a miracle

But if you asked me if I loved him, I’d lie
