Should I confess my feelings that are all in mess?
I keep wondering about you day and night
Then I convince myself that love is nothing but a myth.
At night, I think of you
You whisper in my ears, “I love you too.”
Hold my hand and promise me forever,
You’ll be by my side and leave me never.
Hold me tight, my head on your shoulder
That light is warm, yet I feel colder.
His heartbeat I could feel,
My sleep he did steal.
That instant a thought broke my dream
What if this love is not real?
Maybe it’s just a mere fantasy?
Maybe friendship is just concealed?
It made me cry, my heart felt pain
Loving him, was it in vain?
I do love him, am I being dumb?
My soul is shaken and I go numb.
