Crushes, rejection, secrets, you name it.

Poetry On Odyssey: Teenage Fever

I harbor adolescent feelings,

I get my hopes up every single time,

It takes a smile and a pat on the back

For me to develop infatuation,

And it never turns out fine

I'm not used to the romantic scenes,

The typical "do you like me, yes or no?" spiel,

In the end, rejection stings,

And it takes longer to heal

So, I cling on to a dream,

Because it only remains,

Like the wounds from my heart,

To ease the lingering pain

When I'm interested in someone,

I'm guarded

They'll never know the truth

But still it eats me inside

Because they'll never notice the proof

I wish I weren't so optimistic,

I wish I wasn't a believer,

Because indecisiveness and infatuation,

Gave me a life-long case

of teenage fever.
