Without Me

I can take this self torture no longer.  The less I speak my love grows stronger.  Now I'm stricken with this hunger to be with you and alone no longer.
          Come close to me and look deep into my eyes, here is where my passion lies.  It doesn't matter what we see with our eyes because the window to the soul never lies.
          After all the relationships I've been in I haven't felt like this with any of them.  That's why I consider you one in a million; not to say I've had a million, but I've had enough to know the feeling and what I'm feeling when I'm with you is something totally and utterly new.
          See I wanted to get to know you better and I couldn't do that in the from of a letter, so here's my heart poured out as a poem and my open arms to welcome you home.  Now in hopes you respond to one of the two, here is what I propose you do.  Think long and hard, but not too fast.  I really want this love to last.  As for my next opinion, release your heart it shall find its dominion.  Finally, for love to be your compromise you must be careful and choose wise, but I was meant for you in my eyes, so I am where your answer lies.  But take your time, you decide.  I waited this long to finally decide my love's too strong to continue to hide.  Over and over as much as I tried, my heart just couldn't open that wide, but my mind wouldn't let it abide.  Now if you decide you don't want me I hope love finds you eternally because while I want you to be happy, it just wouldn't be the same without me.
