I can't see into your
baby blue eyes anymore
because he has made you cry again,
and this time it's a flood.

I'm the one drowning though,
and I'm too stubborn to ask for help.
I'm always the helper, not the helped;
but I'm at the end of my line.

I want you for myself;
because I love you,
so I can protect you,
and because I love you.

Well, that wasn't so hard,
was it?
No, but only because
she'll never read this.....

Not in bad taste, and I actually understood this one...... it shows how hard it is to show someone you love them, and you're afraid to let that person know you love her, especially after she's been offended by someone else....... my guess is that it was originally directed to a real person, what other motive behind this? Nicely composed, and considerably weighed at the end. Unless I am caught wrong, and it's your own sister! *still guessing*
