Even though I shouldn’t like you

EVERY TIME I TRY TO SLEEP
my stomach turns with thoughts of you.
Your eyes denounce the doubts i keep,
and self-whispered lies that aren’t true.

beyond the threatening shadows of plausible regret,
i forget myself in a pool of possibility.
i try to drag my eyes away from where my heart is set,
but i cannot help but imagine what we could eventually be.
