Watching you smile, my heart drops Hitting the bottom, decaying its prop Gazing into your eyes, the endless abyss All flaws invisible, intentionally missed. Fludders from my heart lift it back up Locked into place, stuck in a rut A nervous wreck, not really sure why Wanting your smile, I continue to try. Feelings I thought lost, found once more Your love surrounds me, stupendous galore Without my presence, but never alone Needing your voice, but not through a phone. I have a picture of you, scorched in my mine Lost in the wilderness, only for you to find A compass with no absolute direction I look in the mirror to see your reflection. Winds blow with the whisper of your name Nothing in life will ever be the same Chiseled from the core, out to the skin Everything I want to say seems too thin. Adequately, I explain my feelings On and throughout, I continue kneeling I look in your eyes for the last time Everything about you, I want to call mine. I want you to love me, give me a test Tell me what you want and I'll do my best I want your trust, without a doubt I've thought of you more times than I can count. Tell me you love me, tell me you'll stay I promise you I'll brighten my gray Put your lips close to mine, take a deep breath Now close your eyes and I'll do the rest.
