Why is it Called a Crush, Anyway?


Why is it called a crush, you ask?

You like a girl with every fiber of your being

You’re attracted to her, she’s all you’re ever seeing

Feelings bubble and never simmer down,

You can’t stand to ever see her frown

So, we’re back to the word. Crush

It means when you see them, you get a rush

But you’re crushed with pain

Crushed with longing

Crushed with the notion that she will be belonging

To you.

She barely ever looks my way, 

But when she does, it makes my day

I nearly always have to pray

That one day

She’ll be mine
