For the girls with messy hair and thirsty hearts...

There's a pain deep down in me, I feel it craving to come up for air but for now I'm taming it to stay down

I have an urge to call you but I know it's forbidden said my parents
I just want you 
I want all of you

I flinch by the sound of your name coming from everywhere
Tv, magazines.... 
Even if I see the first letter of your name I see you

I know you think of me all the time 
But there is no competition to how much  I love you…none

I know it's young love, it's not suppose to be easy, but why is it oh so hard,
People think that our skin colors should not mix

But I see deeper than skin, looks...
I see soul and personality 
I've stopped caring what other people thought of us
Why care? 

School love you may call it
But my name for it is

My mom won't let me date someone because of his skin color
