Just because

I’ll say I love every tiny thing about you
that you didn’t even notice were pretty
and when I’ll talk about them in detail
even if your mouth will drop open
but you’ll only say
I’m really good at it.

I’ll keep myself up all night, many nights
try to write the finest poems about you for you
the best I could do with all my might
even when it’ll make your eyes wet, heart filled with delight
but you’ll only say
I play with words damn well.

but you’ll jump like a jumping jack
giggle as if you’re stoned
feel like the most loved one and the happiest soul
when he’ll email you a wallpaper
downloaded from internet.

I’ll say “I love you” in the warmest tone
answer every stupid question you’ll ask
and will need you the way no one needed before
even when your pores will be in attention
but you’ll only say
I’m really good at talking.

I’ll touch you so delicately like you’re a rose petal
will cup my hands to hold your face
will care it like the most precious thing in the world
even if you’ll feel like all warmed up and wanted
but you’ll only say
Nothing and step back.

but you’ll jump like a jumping jack
giggle as if you’re stoned
feel like the most loved one and the happiest soul
when he’ll stumble and struggle
to make his way towards you.

just because I love you and you love him?

    Such sad admittance of the fact that one is never good enough for the loved one. To love somebody and to not feel loved back is the worst conviction that person can do. Its a punishment, that nobody deserves.
    You write so beautifully, your poems always evoke the most powerful emotions in me.
