Hidden Desire (Please Don'T Break This) - Poem by Elizabeth Sheaffer

I was sinking ever deeper
Couldn't see the light of day
Thought my life was small and worthless
Couldn't chase despair away
You were always there to help me
In times of need, you'd lend a hand
Never knowing my true feelings
Couldn't make you understand
All I wanted was your love
And all I needed was your kiss
You could pull me from the darkness
You could bring me happiness
For years I pined away, alone
With despair I couldn't cope
My thoughts of you were what I clung to
Dreams of you, they gave me hope
Then one day you hugged me tightly
Held me close in your embrace
I could feel my heart just pounding
My blood and pulse begin to race
Then one day you asked that question
The one I'd dreamed so long to hear
I said yes and gave you my heart
You mended it, erased my fear
