Open Up to Me


I need to hear you say something


Just a hey or a hi

Start the conversation

All you have to do is try

Am I crazy to think that you would want someone like me?

We are on two different levels

From what I see

You are successful

I am still trying to get by

So you tell me

If this thing is real or a lie

Deep down

I can’t just let you go

But I am not desperate enough

To chase a shadow

I know

The fear of rejection can be hard

Believe me

I’ll show you a heart that is scarred

Yet, if you never move closer

We will never know

If a notion of love could grow

Leaving me to make a decision

Of possibly

No longer being in your vision

Young soul, I pray you never give up.

Though your day may be grey, please do not go astray.

You have much to live for with a purpose only you can portray.

Rainbows can’t be displayed if there is no rain

Break free from the chains of people who leave you strained

What they lose is another person’s gain

Let the makeup that has run down your beautiful face leave a stain

The pain you’ve endured will build your strength

Helping you to reign

There are people who care

Who understand your worth

That have yet to be unearthed

You are not alone in this fight between the light and the night

The sight of the mountain’s height can give you such fright

Though when at it’s peak, you will find flight

I know it’s hard to cope when you’re walking a tightrope

But please believe me when I say, there is hope

There is more to this galaxy than anyone can comprehend

Lend me your hand so I can help you off this ledge

Rather than face the end

It will take time but I promise your heart can mend

You are important

You are loved

Let these words be your friend
