The idea that I can't help liking him,

starved for crushes, waking up from those dreams.

I keep recalling I'm his back-up.

The idea that I'm trying to deserve someone,

harder and harder, the bittersweet loss.

Liking him, I feel like a fool.


Author's note: I know my crush likes me back' but it’s a strong possibility that he likes my friend better than me. She rejected him earlier this year. I know I don’t deserve to be his back-up plan, like he’s crossing people off a list and I’m second on it. But I really care about him and I think he really cares about me.

TLDR, I'm sad about my crush and I'm writing melodramatic poems when I should be sleeping. Advice about the situation and critiques would really be appreciated.
