    i cant get enough of your name, its insane
    you take up 55% of my brain and i cant maintain
    im attracted to you like a moth to flame
    its not about self esteem, but how can you feel the same?
    is it real or am i reaching for hope in you?
    is this a futile dream to have a love thats true?
    im lost in my feelings and dont know what to do
    i wanna surrender to the sweet bliss that i seek
    its like paradise has a window, and you're a peek
    you make me feel gentle when i wanna feel tough
    you could give me all of you and it wont be enough
    my gut says yes but my heart is not convinced
    it's been burned once and hasn't been the same since
    my greatest fear is for men and womens tendency to cheat
    i wish i could read minds but then trust would be obsolete
    and without trust, what human can feel complete?
    i hate being torn between my own emotions, like a civil war
    it could be happiness knocking, but im scared to open the door
    unease at the thought of someone in my heart again
    but i know that we can never be just "friends"
    will it never end, this constant worry and suspicion?
    my heart talks all negative, should i even listen?
    should i follow my gut and take a risk in loving you,
    or should i pretend i dont feel anything new?
    when i see you talking to guys why do i feel jealousy?
    will i be a coward and let love make me flee?
    who can answer these questions but me?
    its less painful but it's no hope involved
    its like a big riddle waiting to be solved
    i used to think i knew love but it has evolved.

    Hey Derrick, like HubrisWolf says, "When women hear this they'll be under your spell" So true cuz I am convinced that you share my predicament. I never once imagined that a guy could feel this way about love, I always thought that y'all are invincible when it comes to the emotion thing! Am I wrong!! Well thanks for sharing I enjoyed this immensely.
