I'M way over you
This is exacxly what you do
you can't prevent it
You can't deny it
Although you try, but you have to be yourself
And sometimes, I end up being the one on the shelf
Yes, I know I'm not the center of your universe
And for me it often times feels like a curse
You are being yourself, I'm trying to be me
I'm trying to flee and to be free
but you hold my heart unknowingly

I become more and more confused,
trying to hide the truth
It is an evident secret to everyone but you
and thank goodness, you would'nt find the proof
I pretend to be fell of hate
But, its love and it's slowly opening my metal gait
I tell myself your done, you've ruined it
But so suddenly, I'll fall, trip, slip
I start to speak to you
with a friendship type of voice
But you are exactly where my heart points
I love you, tenderly
but you, hold my heart; unknowingly

How can i prevent this?
I fight this raging battle but I know I'm going to miss
You can't control yourself;
displaying your own character
You don't know me, you harly notice me...
but you are my cure
So what do I do?
I'll continue to long for you
I'll remain to be in chains
And endure all these pains
Because I want you earnestly
And you, hold my heart...unknowingly.

The author's comments:
I wrote this piece to represent a situation that I have previously gone through. I loved writing this because it represented how I felt to the fullest extent. I look at it now and I am satisfied with the job I did and I love being able to remember how my life was at that point in time through the poetry that I wrote.

"Many that live deserve death and some that have died deserve life, can you give that to them? Do not be to hasty to deal out death and judgement, even the very wise cannot see all ends."

"Can't get no more free randy!"

Wow, great job. The last line at the end of each stanza was brilliant, "and you hold my heart, unknowingly." I love how the narrarator struggles with the prospect of being in love with this person even though he can't escape it. Great work.
