Open Your Eyes

I don't think you understand...I doubt you ever understood,
Everything you see is what you desire but you've yet dared to look under the hood.
Underneath is chemistry...passion...the dream you long for that can be reality,
But your fear inside enables you to have the strength for such a necessary ability.

You've ran at the sight of the most petty trouble,
Within your jog something inside caused you to make a sudden stumble.
You know my heart...the man that I am...so why let me go?
Through out all your trails I never let your spirit remain low.

You don't want to be hurt but look into the rear-view,
I maintained weeks of you causing me pain simply cause I wanted you too.
The way I see it you can stay mad and live in the past,
Or be woman enough and grasp something that could be meant to last.

I don't expect a response cause I say this as a man that feels you should know my mind,
I just needed you to realize that heaven really isn't hard to find...

    Sometimes the ones we love can not see what is standing right in front of them. Excellent write full of emotion.
