I use reading and writing as an escape, a way to see the world from different eyes, and a way to live the life I dream of.

Dedicated to a boy that I will always love, whether he reciprocates the feelings or not. I hope he knows that he is never unloved.

Know You Are Loved By Me

April 11, 2021

I wonder if you'll ever know just how loved you are
It pains me each time I hear you say "Nobody cares"
It cuts me deeper and deeper, each time leaves a new scar
So I'm putting aside
My ego and pride
So you don't remain unaware

I haven't the courage to speak my heart
While facing you, my beloved counterpart
But I have my words,
Though they might be slurred,
If not unheard, I can make them art

I watch intently when you speak of things you love
Because I can't avoid being mesmerized
By the way the passion lights up your eyes
Even though you don't consider me prized
You still hold my heart with an iron glove

So take my hand as we lay in the grass
We can count the stars and rename a few
Find constellations of heroes once true 
As long as you're here, I'll enjoy the view
Without a care of the time that will pass

Whatever your endeavors, for now and forever
I will cherish our bond, hold it high and proud
I will help you turn the world upside down 
Until the ocean returns to its home in the clouds
If it means our bond can never be severed

So next time you say that "Nobody cares"
That nobody out there hears your prayers
Know that I will be here
And to you, my dear
No one else in existence compares

    This piece is so beautiful, and really leaves me thinking. I truly hate it when people close to me say something along the lines of , "nobody cares," or "i have no friends."
