    It's been two weeks and I've searched my soul for the words
    Somehow they exist, but are evidently hidden
    I could show you, but the problem is your presence is too far to grasp
    So I feel that fate has been forbidden

    You're the epidemy of a woman
    You lack nothing from beauty to knowledge
    Sometimes I try to hard, then I try to not try at all
    Because I am hoping that my love for you is acknowledged

    If I could define my every thought
    My mouth would probably be able to form the sentences
    If I could elaborate on every emotion
    I'd probably be able to fully have what I've been blessed with

    I've sat in front of the same mirror for days at a time
    Practicing my approach to your confusion
    Sometimes I find myself acting out each scene in my brain
    And for 3 long minutes, there's actually an illusion

    I've managed to speak on subjects that only rotted in my brain
    That became welded to my skull
    And as crazy as it sounds to you
    I feel like every time I push, you pull

    For two weeks I've searched my soul for these words
    I knew they existed, but were evidently hidden
    I wish I could've shown you, but your presence is too far to grasp
    Now its up for you to decide if fate is forbidden

    Because I finally found the words...
