Chasing Shadows

By: Candace Fontyn

I've been trying to get to your heart
But I'm chasing shadows
Every step is pulling us apart
We're kept between glass windows
Nobody said it would be easy
And I've got no guarantees
I'm not the kind of girl who's sleazy

Nothing can keep me away
Not the cloudy skies, or the rough seas
No other obsession could take your place
Or match the perfection of your face
Maybe if you could see what I see
When I close my eyes
Maybe then you might realise
That I'm afraid of rejection
Afraid of pain
Afraid of the tears that will fall
When someone utters your name
So I will wait here until that day comes
I sit in my room
And twidle my thumbs
... Waiting for your acknowledgement.
