A girl I like writes poetry. I wanted to understand her, I guess, so I decided to write a poem about her. I think it's kind of manipulative/transparent to be like "oh I wrote this poem" when I've never written a poem in my life or been interested in poetry, but that doesn't stop me from fantasizing about she'd react.
So I want to hear how you'd react if you got my poem and read it was about you. I want to show it to someone, and all my friends and family would make fun of me, so I'm showing some strangers.
"My heart became a bit heavy,
and I didn't even realize it.
And so when I saw the butterfly,
I only saw how fragile she was.
But then she reached out,
and I dreamt about falling through the open air.
So maybe fragility is lightness,
a willingness to be tossed around by gusts of wind,
in exchange for the chance to fly. "

Very melodramatic, like all teenage poetry.1
