Supposed to Tell You? by Ellie Kan

Supposed to Tell You?


 

How am I supposed to tell you?

That my knees go weak,

My face goes red,

As you walk into the room.

 

How am I supposed to tell you?

That my heart starts to pound,

My hands start to sweat,

As you glance toward me.

 

How am I supposed to let you know?

That the feelings I have for you are real?

How am I supposed to voice my opinions

about your deep coffee eyes,

and your smooth caramel skin.

 

How do I tell you?

To give me an answer,

It could be a note,

Or maybe a smile,

But, I need some response to help me now.

 

How am I not to die inside?

As you back away once you hear,

The truth of my desire,

The longing of my heart.

 

How am I supposed to tell you?

That you have broken my heart.
