The Way

For so long I've hurt way too much
I've been fighting hard but I've lost my way
All it takes is that one little touch
And tears fill these eyes colored like blue jays

Just take my hand and hold it tight
Lean your head against mine
When our gazes meet my world fills with light
You're making me feel way too fine

If I could I'd stay like that forever
Just the two of us, breaking the laws
I feel so perfect whenever we're together
Looking like a slow dance set on pause

I know when you hold me in your arms
You're asking me not to leave
When your fingers stroke my face, the atmosphere warms
And I can really start to believe

I like the hint of sadness that you have it makes your writing really good.

The beauty of these poems are breathtaking. It makes people who don't have love want and need it!
