You're Really Something Beautiful

Cherish Amanda Greene, a junior at Chelsea Public School, says she wrote this poem about a boy at school, "who has literally caused me to think of nothing else since he arrived on campus." Cherish says she has written many poems, but none with the emotional intensity that she felt while writing this one. "When a poem comes out easily, it's from the heart," she says.

 

You're really something beautiful,

I can't help but admire.

To say I didn't fall for you

Would make me such a liar.

‘Cause every time our eyes lock,

My heart is set on fire.

You're really something beautiful

I can't help but admire.

 

You're really something beautiful,

I fear I must confess

That since the first I saw you

My mind you have possessed.

You haunt my waking moments,

You're whispered in my breath,

You're really something beautiful

I fear I must confess.

 

You're really something beautiful,

I'd die to tell you so.

I fear the sting of ridicule,

I'll never let you know.

The other girls fawn o'er you,

They're not ashamed to show,

You're really something beautiful;

I'd die to tell you so.

 

You're really something beautiful,

I'm quite the little fool,

To dream that you'd prefer me

Over other girls at school.

And what a silly sot I am,

You're simply way too cool.

You're really something beautiful,

I'm quite the little fool.

 

You're really something beautiful,

I try hard not to stare,

To look inside those deep blue eyes

Pretend there's something there.

I think that when it comes to me

You couldn't ever care,

You're really something beautiful

I try hard not to stare.

 

You're really something beautiful,

Perhaps there'll come a day,

When those blue eyes aren't in my mind,

Perhaps they'll even fade.

I hate the way I like you now,

These crushes never pay.

You're really something beautiful,

And I can't stay away.
