Open Up to Me

shadows

I need to hear you say something

Anything

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

True Love is not….

True love is not, driven by force or fear.

True love is not, with a fist full of beer.

True love is not, making you look like, “a deer in the headlights,” leading you to tears.

True love is not, keeping you near to the point of always wondering if you’re in the clear.

True love is not, using words like a spear.

True love is not, controlling how you think, act, or feel.

True love is not, masking the truth underneath a chandelier.

True love is not, keeping you from your family or peers.

True love is not, saying sorry and being insincere.

True love is not, letting another interfere.

True love is not, when your self-worth depletes because they are the auctioneer.

True love is, helping you steer the wheel through life’s frontier, so you may persevere when all you want to do is disappear.

Do not be discouraged my dear for true love, I promise, will appear.
