The way you hold my gaze
As if you understand just what I'm thinking
Arouses me. I feel it in my chest
You cause tension, an itch that drives me crazy
and just a bit of pain
My stomach turns as if I'm about to jump off a cliff.
What if? What if?
We could speak our minds
what would happen if we could let each other in?
There is no doubt, we might not like what we will see..
You're looking at me
You make me want to let loose
Unleash all hell
Burn you to the ground
I bite my nails.
It's just lust I think. All in your head. What I see isn't really there. Even if it is it's so far away.
I'm not so brave. No. Foolish. To dive in that deep.
Green as the place I grew up in
Black as the night sky after midnight
Blue here and there like the depth of the ocean
Yellow like Autumn leaves
Brown like good coffee on a calm morning
And long eyelashes making you look innocent and charming
I would love to look at those eyes that remind me of everything I had and long for
But the truth behind them is not one to hold on to
And I would write you poems but you don't like to read
Or else you would've read my lips when I said "you'll never be what I want you to be"
And so for once I say to myself:
Don't play with this fire
You're not ready to risk your soul for charming eyes burning with desire
Something deep there is rotten and you know that, now hear
cause the eyes speak, but the words mean more and cut deep
