Favorite Quote:
"Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and I, I took the one less traveled by, and it has made all the difference." ---Robert Frost


You've opened my eyes
You've opened my mind
You've opened my heart,
You know its chart;
And yet you hold back,
But what do I lack?
I want you with me,
Always a part of me,
There by my side
With love confided.

And yet you hold back,
But what do I lack?

You're everything to me,
Mine meant to be,
You spend my time away,
Never at bay,
Yet the time's tickin'
But I ain't swayin',
'Cuz you're the one, the one I love,
The one I want for my turtle dove.

And yet you hold back,
But what do I lack?

My love's proclaimed
For you, by name,
For that wonder,
My sweetest plunder,
My counterpart,
My heart's charter.

And yet you hold back,
But what do I lack?

'Cuz you're my lifeline,
So sweet and kind,
Promising life,
Without the strife,
And hanging on,
Steady and strong,
Slowly bringing me
Back to reality.

And yet you hold back,
But what do I lack?

Is it my beauty,
Flaws you see?
Is it my friends
That you wish to mend?
Is it my talents
That don't exist?
Personality?
Or is it just me?

And yet you hold back,
But what do I lack?

'Cuz i love you,
That'll always be true,
Hooked in by your bait,
Without a date,
Without an answer,
Without you...


The author's comments:
When someone you love "holds back on you", you feel like it must be because of something you did. Hey, that's what love feels like for us teens...
