A poem, for the guy i like...

Okay so here's the deal, i like this guy but he has a girlfriend from hell. I really like him and he likes me back, but he doesn't know that i know. So this is pretty much me and him right now. I'm at a conflict on whether or not to give it to him, so could you guys tell me what ya think? thanks.

I used to walk alone.
A pen in one hand,
A guarded heart in the other.
Unknowingly i accidentally walked down the path of love.
I walked on,
Still clueless on the wrong path.
As i neared the end,
I realized my mistake.
Running back would be useless,
Because my feet were stuck in place.
A tearing noise filled the panicked silence.
I looked at the hand that held the pen,
Love song lyrics covered my skin,
All in my penmanship.
The tearing noise turned to ripping,
and it continued.
Nervously i glanced at my other hand,
The one holding my heart.
What i saw still scars me.
I saw a pair of hands tearing all the protection off my heart.
The chains, the bindings, lock and all.
All off my safely guarded heart.
Once it was all gone,
the hands stole it.
Stolen from my eyes.
After the shock had left me,
I let my eyes wander.
They followed the hands,
and the hands lead straight to you.
You looked me in the eye,
Not at my chest or lower than my hips.
You looked me in the eye like i was a real person,
And not like a piece of trash that everyone else saw.
I tried to snatch back my heart,
But as i lunged forward i stumbled.
With your free hand you caught and held me,
Only for a slight second.
Then you dropped me.
Just like that,
For another girl.
As you walked away,
You stuffed my heart into your pocket to keep it close.
I laid there still and alone,
While my insides leaked out ,
From the gaping hole in my chest.
When she held you close with her back to me,
You looked my way.
By then i was off the ground,
Dusting myself off.
You mouthed something my way,
That gave me hope.
The words hit me and healed my wound.
Now i understand the meaning,
And that i feel the same way.
Three words.
So small and worthless when apart,
But can make up a whole person's world when said together.
I.
Love.
You.
