Deep

[Preface -- This is about a friend of mine that I loved. I still love. Sometimes it's hard to get to know people when they have walls up around their heart. You can't just destroy the walls quickly without destroying the person.]


There's a sadness about you

There's a sadness about me

There is BEAUTY in you
There is BEAUTY in me

I take the time to see you
Do you take the time to discover me?
Do I care enough to know you?
Do you care enough to feel something for me?

Is fear keeping you at a distance?
Am I trying to hard?
Did I push you away?
Maybe I'm not ready to let you in
or give my heart away

There's a sadness about you
There's a sadness about me

Maybe there is something deep
Deeper than my hesitation
Caused by me
Intimidated by you
I stay behind the fence
I am afraid to take the first step
Inside
On the outside, I remain
Maybe there is something deep

Deeper than your broken heart
Deeper than the pain that keeps us both apart
Maybe
There
Is
Something
Deep
