    After all this time
    Are you still afraid to cross that line?
    Long talks midnight passion
    Dreamy visions of you and I
    Upon the silver moon
    Inside our realm
    What do it take to make you open up
    To who you really are?
    For I know I don’t have whole only half
    By your side in trying times
    Never giving up….

    Open your eyes
    As I touch your soul
    Nice and slow
    Hold your heart as
    I sing you the lullaby
    Invade your mental
    And soothe your worries
    Just hold your hand
    Be your strength when you’re weak
    Fold you and protect you
    When times seem to just run
    And you lose control
    I am there…but you cant see

    Open your eyes
    If I didn’t want to be with you
    I wouldn't do all that I do
    You don’t have to be afraid
    Open your eyes and realize
    Don’t push me away
    Not this time
    Hold on to me
    The deal is I am real
    But are you? I have to ask
    As I feel like I am in a maze
    A blind daze in a craze
    Trying to dig my way out
    Just stop driving me so crazy
    Tired of the faze of the confusion
    Open your eyes

    You say I say
    I love you
    You love me more
    Likewise….
    What is it you really want?
    Its time to stand your ground
    No tricks not even a mix
    After all this time
    Are you still afraid to cross that line?
    Open your eyes
    Just open them…

    I'm feeing this most deeply, sister - the frustration, the anger. This is a heartfelt flow.

    Sometimes we're the last to see what's obvious to so many others, until it's too late. This had a very genuine feel to it. Flow on.

    I liked this piece alot!! To me it read in threads of trust, one must have trust in any relationship, and trust was the defining factor for this piece
