Face to face

We are face to face and there so many things I could say but I keep quiet.

I wouldn't want to mess our little arrangement up you know start a riot. 

So I stomp out the fire that burns in me like a ciggarette on concrete. 

But the damage is already done. So when I sigh it's me slowly

trying to swallow what's dying to get to the surface.

Sometimes I think my heart does this stuff to me on purpose. 

I need, I want, I am... I battle with wanting you everyday.

I'd give anything to bury these feelings, you know put it down to lay.

But we are who we are and I feel what I feel. I dora explorer

discovered you but I can never explore your feilds. 

Face to face. The things I cannot say.
