Need Me

You move with effortless grace.
 As I steal a glance of your chiseled face.
A sheepish smile makes my heart stop beating.
 To not get hurt again, should I be retreating?

I am "damaged goods" and I can't take that away.
 Afraid that forever that's the way I'll stay.
My smile hides all the hurt I have been through.
 Tell me, what will be so different about you?

Can you help erase all that has been said and done?
 Need me, so that I won't turn around to run.
I have lost myself too many times to count.
 Will your affections be enough for my fear to surmount?

You caress my cheek and steal my breath.
 Please Goddess take me away from this living death.
Help to favorably bear upon my tattered and bleeding soul.
 Use the elements to once again make me whole.

I beseech you to bless me with a favor from your heart.
 Have pity on me as I silently fall apart.
I am unsure of how much more heartache I can take.
 Listen closely and you can hear my heart slowly break.

I wait for him to hold my face and gently kiss me.
 My chest tightens and I can hardly breathe.
I wait with bated breath for his lips to finally meet mine.
 Our hearts and bodies long to intertwine.

I feel his gaze on me as I shamelessly daydream. 
 Heat rushing to my cheeks as the tears fall in a stream.
How could I get caught with my heart out on my sleeve?
 I'm not sure his love is a goal I'm able to achieve.

I taciturnly say a prayer to help me find some peace.
 In hopes that my fears will acquire a way to cease.
Need me, love me, find me, see me in a different light.
 My heart recognizes you and I no longer want to try to fight.
