Love? No. Fate? I Think So

Some may think it’s just a poem by a teenager in lust. Yes, it’s corny and exaggerated. However, it’s not an excuse to talk about a crush. I’ve only met him once. For me, this poem means something, because I wrote it in the midst of my confusion about my strong feelings. I barely know the guy, yet, and this is cliché, I can't get him out of my mind. I’m usually very casual with guys, but I had to try really hard to act normal. It seems like a love poem, but I can say “good times” reading it.

I knew the day we met
That we were meant to be
I knew our fate was set
That you were the one for me

I didn’t even know you
I only knew your name
I wasn’t sure what to do
I didn’t know who to blame
I knew I thought you attractive
I could tell that you were nice
The butterflies were so active
That I couldn’t think twice

Everything I did that day
Didn’t show you who I am
Every time you came my way
My heart began to ram

My actions weren’t natural
My reactions weren’t real
I felt so very terrible
But my heart I did not wield

And when the group said goodbye to me
My eyes were fixed on you
I knew I was trying to see
If you felt the same way too

I liked you when I saw your face
But maybe it was the touch
My heart had begun to race
I already liked you too much

I knew the day we met
That we were meant to be
I knew our fate was set
As friends, as lovers, as enemies.
