Tell Her Directly
I've read your poetry, so frought with need.
Buddy, you have to tell her how you feel.
The game may end if you hesitate.
There is no guarantee.
She doesn't hate the truth in your heart.
She isn't afraid of the power within you.
It's the games that she hates.
She hates having to search the air for answers
That you throw out with no guarantee
That the clues are even your own.
You have to tell her directly.
You have to be brave.
Grab hold of your destiny.
Love her so much that she cannot possibly escape.
You can lose her either way.
After a while, when lovers read messages in a bottle,
They have to meet.
There can be no answer without a resolution.
You have to tell her in person.
Find a solution.
