I Am Nervous

I get nervous when people don’t text me back

I get nervous when I walk into a full bathroom

I get nervous when I have to interrupt a class

I get nervous when I have to present in math

I get nervous when I have to buy something

I get nervous when my work is up for debate

I get nervous when a cute boy talks to me

I get nervous when anyone talks to me really

I get nervous when that cute boy doesn’t text

I get nervous when I see “dot” “dot” “dot”

I get nervous when bad things happen

I get nervous when the “dot” “dot” “dot” stops

I get nervous when I think bad things will happen

I get nervous when good things happen

I get nervous when he asks me to get milk

I get nervous about losing the good things

I get nervous sometimes (A Lot) 

I get nervous when he looks at me sweetly

I get nervous when she looks at him too

I get nervous when there’s no “dot” “dot” “dot”

I get nervous when he asks about my parents

I get nervous when they bother to call

I get nervous when I wake to check his breathing

I get nervous when I think he isn't for a moment

I get nervous when he catches me checking

I get nervous when he looks at me like that

I get nervous when he wraps me up in his arms

I get nervous when he tells me that he loves me

He gets nervous when I get nervous,

And tries to stay my trembling hands.
