How am I supposed to pretend that nothing is bothering me?
He's with another girl, and this causes anxiety.
I can't think and my lungs lock up.
I may itch, or sneeze and sometimes I hiccup.
But what is this that's getting me so out of place?
I really need some help, just a little head space.
I want to reveal the hidden infatuation, but how will he react?
Maybe we shouldn't have ever whacked.
But maybe that has nothing to do with this.
This infatuation may have been brought upon by that kiss.
Not the first one, but the one in the garage.
It has forced my feelings to dislodge,
I want to reveal the truth.
But I seem to be stuck with forsooth.
Maybe I should just keep it a secret.
And remain the unloved, hidden infatuation poet.
