A Heart Captured
I yearn for you in my thoughts.
As if my mind
has omitted all possible reasoning.
When I see you
I speak softly.
Trying to hide my feelings
such pain inside.
You clearly maintain your stance.
This is were you belong,
you are not those other guys.
I think to myself
is this not my heart to keep closed
and yours to leave alone?
I try to shake loose your powerful grip.
Stand firm to maintain my balance.
And still you continue
to reach out your hand.
In hopes I extend mine.
Is not this my moment of freedom
and your time to let me go?
I convince my spirit
that there is nothing there.
Take steps towards it
but never walk out the door.
You confirm to me your sincerity.
Telling me to open up…to let you in.
Is not this my spirit to share as I choose
And your opportunity to move on?
Yet I still find myself gravitating to you
like some misplaced soul
You leave your heart open to me
to make plain your role.
Was not my heart yours to capture
And your heart mine to hold?
