You and Me

pexels-photo-397096.jpeg

You keep me so far away.

Without letting me have a say.

Not listening to my emotions.

 

The love, I have

The urge, I have

This feeling that I want.

 

I want to know you,

The you that you’ve hidden away.

The you that hides,

The one beneath this happy façade.

 

I want to protect you,

The you that’s oh so fragile

The you that’s chipping away.

The one that I wish to save.

 

I want to be next to you,

The you that’s so far away,

The you that doesn’t want me to stay.

The one that needs someone like me.

 

Let me get close,

Let me be that shield,

Let me be the one.

The one that will help you.
