I wrote this poem in 1998, about this guy I was mad crushin who went to my church…Ironically he reminds me SOOOOOOOOOO much of the guy I am crushing now (heck I am way pass crushing him..I’m just plain ole infactuated now..-should I be admitting to that?-Anyway..lol)

They have a lot in common they even have very similar physical features, interests, mannerisms, hobbies, likes and dislikes…and ironically they both claimed they like me too……funny huh? I guess I just like a certain kind of man.

SYMPTOMS OF A CRUSH

You’ve put that funny feeling on the inside of my heart


That feeling that makes me…
miss you whenever we are apart

That feeling that makes me…
run home and call you when I was just in your vicinity

That feeling that makes me …
say “Boy go away!”, when I really want you near to me

That feeling that makes me…
Think of you and smile

That feeling that makes me…
take my kindness that extra mile

That feeling that makes me…
hurt whenever you are in pain

That feeling that draws me…
back to you time and time again

That feeling that makes me…
playfully tease you each and every time

That feeling that makes me…
say “Ooo, he is sooo fine!”

That feeling that makes me…
just a little bit jealous whenever you are with another female

That feeling that makes me…
feel like I’m under some kind of love spell

That feeling that makes me…
Have visions of you all day and dreams of you all night

That feeling that makes me…
glad God brought you in my life

That feeling that makes me…
give ALL other males the cold shoulder

That feeling that makes me…
write your name all over my school folders

That feeling that makes me…
write our name together in pairs

That feeling that makes me…i
nclude you in all of my prayers

That feeling that makes me…
wonder how our first kiss could be

That feeling that makes me…think,
“Could he really like me?”

That feeling that makes me…
want to be closer to you

That feeling that makes me…
say, “I really like you, I know you know it Boo!”

That feeling that makes me…
think of the silly things I do because I like you and laugh

That feeling that makes me…
”accidentally” cross your path

That feeling that makes me…
want to hear your voice

That feeling that makes me…
think, “Is he ever going to make a choice?”

That feeling that makes me…
put on my dress and my best cologne

That feeling that makes me…
treasure the moments we spend alone

That feeling that makes me…
stay on the phone with you until 4:00 am on a school night

That feeling that makes me…
look pass all the wrongs that you do and only see what is right

That feeling that makes me…
look over the negative things about you, that people speak

That feeling that makes me…
Go crazy when I haven’t seen you in a week

That feeling that makes me…
care less about how much money you can give me

That feeling that makes me…
care less about whether you drive a Yugo or a Caddy

That feeling that makes me…
look beyond what you are, and see what you can be

That feeling that makes me…
tell everyone don’t judge you by what they see

That feeling that is…
always with me and never parts

That feeling that is…
deep inside, deep within my heart

That feeling that makes me…
Say, “Hurry up and make him yours, But don’t rush!”

That feeling that gives…
One like me “The Symptoms of a Crush!”

Final Thoughts: I promise the replay button seems to be permanently stuck, when it comes to my love life (or lack therof)..It’s seems like the same things keep replaying them self in my love life(or lack thereof) …The scenes, and the people change, but the situations stay the same -what the deal? This poem is also very relevant to today……
