A Crush

I can feel this feeling

Building up in my veins

The lurch in my stomach

Am I too late

To tell you how I feel?

I’m thoroughly flummoxed

By the build-up inside

Why can’t you see

That I’m just shy?

But perhaps this

Personality defect

 Will kill my wish

Of you and I

(Maybe) together at last

Time ticks by and by

And the feeling grows and grows

My heartache hasn’t quit

All my…  whatever it is I feel for you

Flows faster than the swiftest current

But a dam’s blocking it

You’ll never know

How much you mean to me

It’s all my fault

I guess that’s why it’s called

A crush
