Written by Jacob Ibrag

I’ve been, avoiding you for some

time now. You’ve got this I don’t know,

this type of tone in your voice when you speak

to me. It’s got a hint of endearment and an obscene

amount of care. And I guess it sort of scares me because,

the closest thing I’ve ever had to that was in a dream where

reality was suspended. So when I walked away from you,

it wasn’t because I don’t feel the same way. I just, don’t

know if I was built to reciprocate. Maybe with some

patience you can spare my blabbering heart, and

reprogram my mind into opening up. I lo…

I promise, I like you very much.

  21. Lovely poem. I’m the opposite though. I love and give away my heart too quickly and before i realize that the other person doesn’t reciprocate.
