The Unanswered Question
When you look at me
What do you truly see?
Am I the one roaming your every fantasy?
Or am I the one who will never be!
Do I some how fulfill your every need
Or do you see me as the desire to your greed,
In some way do I complete you?
Am I the person you can’t see through?
Can I be the friend you trust?
Or do you look at me with eyes of lust?
Was I the reason for your dream come true?
Do you see me as the one who will break your heart in two?
So tell me what do you see?
How can you set your emotions free?
Can I be your first passionate kiss?
To grant your every wish
Am I that hidden desire?
Willing to make your heart beat like a deadly fire
Awakening a new type of passion and romance
Being that taken and given chance
Once again when you look at me
What can you truly see?
So ends the question
Of a hearts unknown confession!
