All or Nothing




All or Nothing

You don't really want to hear
The words that caused my tears
Or know the reason my heart aches
My emotions you don't want to partake
My fears and doubts you don't care to ease
Once that door is closed, barricading is my expertise
I can't lock away only half of my heart
This will cause no more feelings to depart
Now I will keep all within
Things will never again be like they've been
If I can no longer release
Denying a part of me just to appease
Accept me for me
This is my final plea
Or it's leading to our downfall
It's all or nothing at all

Be careful of what you ask for... because you are asking for more than what is written here, whether you know it or not.

If Eugene knows like I know he might want to listen to you cause "Once that door is closed, barricading is my expertise" speaks loud and clear.

Have you spoken these exact words to him?

sweet poem with nice ryhmes. I think in these case a dialogue will do. You dont have to shot him out or lock your feelings. you will be loved the way you want, but first, hold a genuine dialogue to trash all uncommon grounds.

I am sorry you are feeling this way and hope that things work in your favor. Beautiful and emotional poem as well.
