Confessions of the Heart

I have been infatuated by you since the month of November.
You caught me off guard the moment I laid eyes on you.
You would think your beauty is the very thing that raptured me in your river Styx, but it was actually your nature.
The moments I have seen you, you have graced me with the ultra violet rays, which descended from your beautiful smile.
Your very presence made me feel humid in the winter, calm in the times of danger, and starving wanting the moment with you to last for an eternity.
I had many past loves in my past lives, but in this life you have captured me, erasing memories of others.
You are my Elizabeth Benet to Mr. Darcy, my Penelope to Paris, my Scarlett to Rhett, and I’m to you as you is to me.
I hope that the confidence that shriek me to the size of a skittish mouse, will not bind me for long.

You probably think of me as a boy with a temporary feeling, but I wish that it was just that.
During the month of December, I have thought and craved for you, it even brought pain to my heart, for I haven’t lain upon you for a time.
I must admit I hated you for making me feel this way.
I hated that you dared to haunt my every memory and dream, and the days I lay awake.
I festered myself in other women of beauty, but they didn’t matter, not now, not ever.
You’re different, but accustomed, petite but strong, polite but fearless.
You are perfect in every aspect.
You present yourself as a lady of elegance, and grace, unlike the ladies that surround us who are outspoken and rude, and gallant their gifts to every suitor.
You are also wise for you have learned to flee from the tricks and illusions of the illusionist who flock our hallways.
The way you style yourself is exquisite; you put to shame many ladies of your time and the women of your senior.
I can’t wait until our eyes come into contact and we can finally meet face to face, but until then may you bless me with your noticing presence, that un-notice me.
