Please let me know how you feel afterwards and summarize my poem in one sentence so that I can see where to work on getting my message across more clearly. I hope you can relate (or rather, for your sake, that you can't). What do you think of the word I coined?

Magmatized

I went through life the same way every day
Did the daily grind and felt nothing, had no vision.
As I was about to leave a regular haunt, I saw you enter there
And something curious told me to stay.
It said not only that, but to talk to you, if I dare.
 
My stone cold heart told me not to,
Not to walk over: indecision.
Said it was a waste of time. I agreed.
But something said “Come, friend: try something new; let there be two.”
I went to leave, but ‘twas a noxious weed.
 
The closer I got the brighter you shined
You filled my whole field of vision.
I will always remember your yellow hair bow.
It was my heart you mined –
No rather, turned it to magma; I felt love flow.
 
My heart, magmatized
You and I – a powerful collision.
I wanted to be your friend and get to know you
My desires were somewhat realized
But what I feared soon became true.
 
What magician are you, miss?
I sat next to you at that haunt (I planned it out with precision)
And you did homework, or read.
Once, we played that hand-slap game.
I loved you from the start, still do, even as I write this.
I wished that perhaps someday you’d change your name.
(to mine, of course)
 
But Reality has the coldest touch
He laughed at me with derision.
That there really was a human who was beautiful, caring, cute, and smart?
(And one that I knew?!?)
Surely I was asking too much.
And so, with a flourish, He made us part.
 
I go through life the same way every day
Do the daily grind and feel nothing, have little vision.
As I leave my regular haunts, I see you enter there
But it is only Him tricking and taunting me with shadow play.
Reality, you are a hideous bear.
(Someday, I will beat you, I swear)

    Hey foxmillionaire! The name of the channel is Lighthouse Infinity. Imagine a place where you can watch episodes of cool shows (Netflix?) without paying money (nope not Netflix). Sounds cool, right? Short term goal, I will be releasing a short film hopefully this winter. Midterm goal, releasing the first season of my show summer 2018. There isn't anything for you to watch at the moment :( but if you subscribe you'll be the first to know when something is released. Long-term vision? I will have a large platform where I will be able to feature other indie artist's work as well. Thanks for asking!
