All that comes from your lips
Is arrogance and fire.
But I've seen you, the real you,
The object of my desire.

My love, you have managed
To get under my skin.
If only you would open up
Again to let me in.

The soft, sweet, caring you
You wouldn't rather be.
But I've been given a glimpse of that
You're beautiful to me.

The side you wear a mask on
Is all that people see.
But is there a place inside of you
That's hollowed out for me?

In just one moment,
You struck me to the core.
Since I've seen the real you,
I've wanted nothing more.

I'd go with you to the ends of the earth
If only you said, "Follow."
Without you, inside this place.
I've grown so bare and hollow.

I really enjoyed reading this poem. I can really relate to the person you love who shows everyone else a different side of themselves than the side they show you. And how you would almost do anything for them if they just said so. This is a wonderful read.
