Poem: I won’t sleep tonight

I won’t sleep tonight

So are we staying this way?
What can I say I felt in love with you
And now my heart beats only for you
I wanted this since a long time
But nobody was close to me
And if they got close to me, they would fly away
Because of the differences, the irregularities
But I was still breathing
Like a teenage dreamer
What can I say I’ve always thrown love away
Yeah you know, I wasn’t that though tho
But I got infected by you
I was always fearless
But when I am around you, it’s like I am a hero in a movie
I want to protect you
What can I say
So are we staying like this
And I always said “Love won’t find it’s way to me”
But than it hit me
When you found me
Love found it’s way
They said god blessed me
Good life, Good looks and money
But I never cared about god anyway
So I threw all that away
I just wanted to be me
Can you see the real me?
So if you are staying, just say
I am still breathing, my heart is still beating
But it something wrong with it
I look at you and know the reason why
My heart skips a beat or two when I think about you
And I feel free
I told my mother I’d grow up one day
But it ain’t to today
What can I say
I am still breathing
Falling in love with you every evening
And I spent so many sleepless nights because of you
When I thought I’d fall asleep I tough about you
My heart went racing and I stayed awake
The colors of the world I never seen before, I see in you
And whats the craziest part of this is you
It was all planned out until you walked into my life
And than the plan was just blown away by the wind of change
I had to rearrange my whole life
Started to rotate around you and my mind was gone
The only thing I think about, is you
And I can’t keep myself away from you
So we are staying this way
Let the wind blow as away
Together floating flying away
And again I won’t sleep tonight

    “The colors of the world I never seen before I see in you

    .
    I’d have to say these are the lines that stood out most to me. The rest of the poem is good, but I like these lines because it feels as though the whole meaning behind of the poem comes to a head. It brings to light how incredible and special the person is.
