About the Poem

This poem was written about a guy friend of mine whom I've had a crush on for months. Every time we talk it's almost like he's taunting me, as if he knows I want him and likes knowing that I can never have him.

Lately I've tried telling myself that I'm over him, that I should move on to more realistic things. But every time I say that, I'm given another reason to rekindle my desires for him - the way he might look at me, or laugh with me, or smile at me in his peculiar way. It's eerie sometimes, and I know that it's just me seeing things I want to see. But maybe it isn't.

Whatever it is, it keeps me dreaming, and sometimes my dreams are all I've got.

What It Is You Do To Me

There you sit
smiling
And it's you I watch
wanting
But you don't even know
What it is you do to me
So I keep on watching
and wanting
as I bleed

Every time I look at you
Every time I talk to you
Every time I smell you
My heart continues
melting
And I am forever
dreaming

Whenever you pass me by
Whenever you catch my eye
I feel like I want to cry
Because of what it is you do to me

Your eyes
gleaming
And your lips
pleading
And your hands
exploring
While my heart remains
bleeding

Every time you look at me
I wonder what it is you see
Every time you talk to me
And I hear that beautiful voice
My knees get weak
My stomach flutters
My chest collapses
My neck hairs tingle
And I stop breathing
Just in that moment in time
When you do what it is you do to me

As I sit here
yearning
I imagine you
sleeping
And I want to hold you endlessly
Forever in my arms for eternity
I'll continue
dreaming
As long as you are
living
breathing
being

I am a teenage girl in high school and i am a poet. I have won awards for some of my poetry. The only other thing i love better than writting my own poetry, is reading the work of a fellow artist, because that's what a poet is, an artist, only with words. I loved this poem so much. It really reached down and gripped me. Keep up the awsome work.
Samantha

Tonya
This poem touched me because even though I've tried really hard not to fall in love again due to the fact of getting my heart broken so many times before. I can't help it. I'm falling deeply in love with a guy named Chris and this poem describes how I feel about him. well. it's close because words really CAN'T describe how I feel but this poem is really really close to what I feel for him.
Summer

lucy
I think your poem was amazing. It's crazy how someone I know nothing about can write so beautifully what Im going through right now. I really like this one boy but I know he doesn't feel the same and we can't be together. Your poem made my feelings seem ten times clearer. And its comforting to know someone elseis going through the same thing Thanks for helping me realise how much i really do want him.

meg
hey, i just wrote a poem almost identical to yours the other day. i think writing helps and i want you to know ur not alone- and also, talk about it with him. im the most innocent girl ull ever meet(ive never done ANYTHING with a guy lmao, my friends call me the 'ultimate virgin' lmao) but he made me do it- he got me to do it- one of the things he does to me-lol. anyways, we talked it over for a long time until we came to a general understanding. its easier now. i still like him- like today we went out for ice cream, and he was tellin me about this other girl he likes. its hard but what can u do? keep dreamin girl- i find dreams keep me surviving
Jason

I love the poem because it describes how I feel about a guy I have always had a thing for but never could tell him. But I write poems myself and I find that it really helps get things out that I keep in. So keep on writing cus we have a gift!
poem
this poem just touched me, it explained everything i feel for the man i love the sheer sadness of needing someone so much you feel like your life isnt worth living without them. the part where you was sayin youre lips pleading it just reminding me of him lying to me about how much he lied and pretended he wanted me this is my favorite poem. xxxx
LAVI
I work in an office and I have a crush on a married man(nobody known of course) when I read the poem it was like the poem was written for me. I feel all of what is described in your poem.
Flame
This poem touched me as i never thought anyone could ever feel the same as i desire a girl but these feelings stop me from talking to her for more than a second.
Tracy

Charlita
Wow, this poem really portrays what I'm going through right now with one of my best guy friends. I like him so much, but the difference is that he knows. He's all I want, and all I can't have. "Nothing tastes as sweet as what you can't have."
