Canít I
Speak to you
Without fear, shaking
So nervous
To perfect
Iím mute

Canít I
Stand to see
Your face
Avert my eyes
Itís haunted me
Kept me awake
Iím weak

Canít I
See that you feel for me
Even a little
A fraction
Of what I feel for you
I only hope
Iím blind

Canít I
Show you these things
Without destroying myself
But I cannot wait
Have to try
Iím scared

Canít I
Know that youíll care
I donít see it
I canít say it
I canít wish it
But can I hope?

what a lovely way to express the inadequacy many of us humans have felt at one time or another, especially in regards to sharing ourselves. Thank you for sharing.
