We have this connection.
Don't tell me we don't-, I know that would be a lie.
Warm eyes like the deepest depths of a tropical storm-
They look at me, searching, saving.
I feel like you look at me- my soul, who I am.
No one else can do it.
You don't see my failures, accomplishments or friends-
I am the centre of your gaze- you see me, not my facade.
Nothing is powerful enough to break our connection-
That is, except you.
That much power bestowed on one person is dangerous I hear.
Kings, emperors, and Lords have fought-
For the power to rule- for centuries untold.
But I'm not worried-, I trust.
Our connection, no one else's.
You turn and look at me, and I look at you.
I see the guilt and worry lining your eyes-
It's unbecoming- it makes them cold.
I find myself wanting to leap into the frigid waters-,
But I can't. You won't let me in.
Our connection is still strong-, but you won't pick up.
Finally- you do. And I don't want it.
You use your power to break our connection;
Telling me things that make me want to scream, kick and hurt you.
But I can't. And I won't. You deserve more than that.
Lies, deceit, and selflessness on your part got me here.
I've analyzed everything over and over- like a broken record.
Suddenly I feel empty, and idiotic for not seeing it sooner.
Lies, lies, lies. Connection broken.
I know we had the connection- don't tell me we didn't.
Endless hours of conversation prove that.
I know you cared- so don't tell me you don't.
Your gaze tells me that; actions speak louder than words.
I know you can't lie- so stop trying.
Your facial expressions give you away.
You may have broken the connection-
But I forgive you, care about you.
I understand, you taught me how.
We have this connection-
Unbreakable, undefeatable, undeniable.
