Split In Half

Split In Half

I must guard my heart
for loving you
is a very precarious thing

When I see you I forget who I am
I am absorbed by you
Nothing else matters

I hang on your words
I melt under your gaze
I lose myself in you

I am weak and it scares me
Do I even call
it love?
This feeling…this emotion?

I need to stop it now
this falling in love with you
lest I lose myself

So please… I beg of you
don’t look at me with those eyes
and give me that inviting smile

If you really love me
like you say you do
Love me in a way that leaves me intact
instead of split in half.
