Being Around You Makes Me Feel

Being around you
makes me feel inadequate.
You don’t brag;
you just are.
I don’t “just are”
I feel.
I am 99% feels
and 100% rules and logic
How are we friends?

Being around you makes me feel
to be more
to do more
to flirt
to be with you
or maybe just to be you
or anyone like you

Being around you
makes me feel.
I guess that’s a good thing?
But there is only so much feel
a girl can take
Believe me, I know.
Can you help me?
rein in the feels
or satiate them.

Staying here
where I am
longing and lonely
wistful and unworthy
is too much.
I need to get rid of these feelings
or find a soulmate to share their burden
and maybe the burden will become a blessing
if I share it with him.
The most beautiful love is born from the sharing of souls
and my soul is made up of feels.
