Can you look me in the eyes and tell me how you feel?
Be it good or bad, heartbreaking or joyous,
Why keep it in the dark, why be ashamed?
Haven't I said enough without saying "I love you"?
Haven't I made it clear I want to be more than just friends?
For a day, for a week, however long we must try,
Until we understand our feelings, you and I
Am I just not worth the risk?
Did someone hurt you before?
Or are you scared of what might happen
If we stay together a while?
Have faith in yourself, and trust in me.
Why not take the chance, why not risk getting hurt?
Better to break our hearts than to find out too late
That we really did belong.

But only in their dreams can men be truly free. 'Twas always thus, and always thus 'twill be. - Dead Poets Society

Aaaah, these age old questions in relationships ...when truthfully answered make the difference between longevity or a 'dear john' letter...and so we hide.......until we find the person who makes it too difficult to do so.

Thanks for sharing this. My favorit line is the last...since so many of us miss out on what could be a divine experience dodging perceived premonitions of pain.
