   Things you make me feel

Love Joy Depression

    Is there anything you can’t do?

You make me love you

   When I want to kill you

I just can’t take it

    The things you make me feel

Throw my world into a curve ball

     Thirteen years old don’t know what love is

But you make me feel something

     Heart beats Palms sweat

But words form like water

     Like I always knew you

Different ways of showing love

     One too old another too young

Conversations heated by irrational thoughts

     Things too cover true emotion

Confusion Happiness Judgmental thoughts

     Things too describe teenage love

But we will never be

      Too shy feeling neglected sometimes

Who cares I still love you

       You say you’ll be there for me

 Supportive Doubtful

        But will you be here for me

It’s time too get over it

        Your name running through my head

Flirty Enjoyable Company

          (….can‘t think straight….)

All these things you make me feel

           Or you are

I can’t explain what your doing too me

           But don’t stop

Because your love makes me feel great
