I close my eyes to rest;
And there you are.
Always hiding and popping out-
when i least expect.
I go to school;
And there you are.
I act like everything is great,
our minor friendship
is all that I want.
But in my heart It hurts.
Because you know that I like you.
You know that as cool as I act,
As easy- going I seem,
As nice i am to your girl-friend,
You know-
it's just an act.
You hide yourself from me,
you never hurt me
more than you need to.
But don't you see it?
It's that hiding you do so well.
That way you keep yourself
locked tight.
The way you protect yourself
from this world.
It's that warmness you leave behind
and the armor you give me.
It's the things that you've done,
that wipes away what you're doing.
It's just you.
That's what makes me adore you.
And even though I fantasize,
In my heart-
I know,
I can never admit it out loud.
That those three little words
will never pass between us.
Because you know that I like you.
You know that as cool as I act,
As easy- going I seem,
As nice i am to your girl-friend,
You know-
it's just an act.
You hide yourself from me,
you never hurt me
more than you need to.
But don't you see it?
It's the protection you give me,
The respect you show me,
That makes you the unique guy
I just can't get out of my mind.
Give me that final harsh-word,
the one that says-
you are nothing special to me.
And maybe- just maybe,
My heart can finally,
put you in the shadows.
But I know-
And you know,
That neither of us-
Will ever take that last step.

i think the line youh have is fine,i prefer it over tht one last breath.

to me it makes more sense and it hits deeper.

Hey this i the author! I was thinking it would sound better if the very last line- instead of 'that last step', how about 'that one breath.' ?
