It will go unnoticed, often because of its length.
It is a rather sad fact, but a truth nonetheless.
For the simple emotions conveyed in just a few words,
Often hold more sway with those who are emotionally swayed.
There is no depth of the heart, nor a single thought spared.
For the effort placed into a piece that forgoes the winning edge,
For a hint of true meaning.
You will not read this piece and I will not expect you to.
It will not be popular or famous, nor will it see the light of day.
For length is the bane of true poetry,
And that is why so many of my kin have already left.
Thank you however, for reading this;
For you at least took the time to see what I would consider 'truth'.
It is bitter indeed and intensely sad,
But for the you that respects this, I am eternally glad.

I've been in love with you for awhile.
I love your smile,
I love your laugh,
I love how you're always happy,
I love everything about you.
I thought maybe
Maybe this year I could tell you.
All my feelings,
All these things cooped up inside.
You treat me like a human,
No one else has done that before.
To you, I'm not a freak,
I'm not a weirdo.
I don't know if you know this, but
Your best friend told me you love me too.
I didn't know how to react,
Nobody's really loved me before.
Your hands on mine,
The way you linger in when we talk.
I wish you weren't so shy,
And I wasn't such an introvert,
Because maybe then we could get together
And not have to worry about what they'll say.
But until that happens, I wanted you to know,
It makes me happy to know that I'm loved.
