If I denied my feelings
Submitted by Jamie
My heart can be as open as a book,
But you can close it with just one look,
I fear your thoughts, though I long to hear
That one utterance that you want me near.
Why do I allow myself to let the opportunity pass by?
To have love at my feet, then wave it goodbye
If I denied my feelings for you, I’d be off by a mile
For my pulse races at the sight of your smile.
Give me the courage,
The strength to set free
My emotions, the truth I long to decree,
Though I am beginning to believe,
That your heart may never reside with me.
