Unknowingly

I'M way over you
This is exacxly what you do
you can't prevent it
You can't deny it
Although you try, but you have to be yourself
And sometimes, I end up being the one on the shelf
Yes, I know I'm not the center of your universe
And for me it often times feels like a curse
You are being yourself, I'm trying to be me
I'm trying to flee and to be free
but you hold my heart unknowingly

I become more and more confused,
trying to hide the truth
It is an evident secret to everyone but you
and thank goodness, you would'nt find the proof
I pretend to be fell of hate
But, its love and it's slowly opening my metal gait
I tell myself your done, you've ruined it
But so suddenly, I'll fall, trip, slip
I start to speak to you
with a friendship type of voice
But you are exactly where my heart points
I love you, tenderly
but you, hold my heart; unknowingly

How can i prevent this?
I fight this raging battle but I know I'm going to miss
You can't control yourself;
displaying your own character
You don't know me, you harly notice me...
but you are my cure
So what do I do?
I'll continue to long for you
I'll remain to be in chains
And endure all these pains
Because I want you earnestly
And you, hold my heart...unknowingly.

Wow, great job. The last line at the end of each stanza was brilliant, "and you hold my heart, unknowingly." I love how the narrarator struggles with the prospect of being in love with this person even though he can't escape it. Great work.
