No Matter

By Ariel G.
Grade 13, New York

No matter how much I try,
When you walk by,
You're always on my mind,
I try to forget,
But yet,
There's something deep, down inside of me,
Denying it.

If you stare at me,
I stare into space,
Pretending not being able to see it,
But really I do see,
And it hits me,
Each time you stare,
It makes me crazy,
Not being able for me not to tell you how I feel.
