Your face, your smile
The way you always pet my head
when I hug you, but inside,
No matter what, my heart is dead.
I want to tell you, to let you know,
My fears and most importantly dreams
That I have of you and I, but alas,
What if reality isn't as it seems?
My disconcerting past has changed me, fantasies
Never enough to heal my aching heart
He left behind and my feelings have
Nothing to turn to, no place to start.
When you look at me, I want to see
That to you I'm irreplaceable, a life
In your hands you aren't so willing to
Toss aside, or plague with endless strife.
If I trust you with my heart,
Love me, cherish me, care for me
forever, and if you don't, then
help me find the light so I can see.
