Unrequited love to another teenage girl.

17 Year Old Girls

by emilyprostko

You make me feel a feeling that I can't put into words.

And I can put everything into words.

I look at pictures of you, and my chest gets heavy and it hurts to breathe, because the weight of your beauty is resting on my lungs.

I can't talk, because the thought of us kissing is closing up my throat.

My stomach is coming alive with butterflies, because your presence has dived inside it and cocooned all the caterpillars.

I feel like dying, I feel like I'm flying.

Why is it like this?

Also, why can't it always be like this?

This poem was incredibly real. You wording brought things to a pedestrian level som that the reader was able to position themselves witth you. The free verse sailed us away to the land of love then snapped us back into reality. This poem was dynamite and describing all the corporeal feelings that emante from love. You obviously took effort in revealing your message.
