I let my guard down

I don't know
where to begin
I let my guard down
and let you in
it was slow
but so final
I didn't realize
through my denial
I was fooling
only myself
you see the best in me
always have
you listen when I speak
it made my heart weak
before I knew
you had drew
me out of my guarded place
you used such grace
now I trust you
I fell for you
I need you
but I can't have you
you feel the same way
I see it in your eyes
the smile you don't
bother to hide
the knowledge of this fact
is crushing me inside
my hearts starting
to break
not because of you
but the fact
I can never ever
have you
but I want
you
and only
you
