Mildly Amused

why do i find myself so drawn to you
why do i long to pull you near?
Why do things not seem so true
Until I can whisper it in your ear?

why do i find myself so hurt and confused
so perplexed and yet mildly amused
at the possiblities of the "why" involved
why dont i let this great mystery be solved?

i have had hurt handed to me too many times
to come back for another helping
like a greedy kid at supper time,
but i must admit i have feeling for you developing.

just take this for what it is,
a note to show you that i care.
shall i seal it with a kiss
or just send it, having laid my soul bare.
