428 How Do I Tell You? [02 October 2001]

I feel an amazing pull
towards you
this person
whom I don’t really know
you seem attainable to me
and yet not
I think of you
and a gate opens
a flood of emotion
that I cannot deny
rolls on through
with no way to stop the flow
until it levels out
then I shut the gate
til it bursts again
and your face comes to mind again
why you
I wish I knew
but you cannot choose
the one you love
it just happens
though how I know I love you
is a mystery to me
as the deep part of me
that yearns to be near you
to hear your voice
your laughter
yet how do I
let you know
all these emotions inside
that are for you
without scaring you away
I do not understand this
I doubt I ever will
so I must accept it
the way I feel
is as I breathe
I cannot live without it
or without you
