Open

by Victoria Ramey   Jan 10, 2019


Open your eyes,
Open your chest,
Tell me your feelings
Before I lay you to rest

Funny how all of this even began
Running in circles,
Playing pretend,
You where an addict not knowing why,
Chasing me in circles
Revealing your disguise,

Tell me you want me,
Tell me I'm right
Tell me this love is more than a lie,
You know that you want it,
You feel that it's true
Tell me what demons are tormenting you

Open your eyes
Open your chest
Tell me your feelings
Before I lay you to rest

I can see the temptation
Rallying behind your eyes,
Wanting to know more,
Not understanding why,
Feeling is mutal,
So why try to hide?
Come on..

Open your eyes,
Open your chest,
Tell me your feelings,
Before I lay you to rest

    I could almost imagine this put to music as I read especially in regards to the repetition of that stanza.

    Excellent stuff.
