I can see the tears forming around your eyes.
And I can see your fears building up inside.
I can see your confused and tired of life.
I can tell you wish everything felt right.

I can tell your sad and just want to be held.
I can tell you fake that smile and that your going through hell.
I can tell your afraid and fed up with the pain.
I can tell your feelings are hard to explain

All you need is for someone to come along.
And take your fears away so they'd be gone.
Someone to keep you warm when your shivering and your cold.
Someone of whom with your future will unfold.

Someone to take your hand and hold on tight.
Someone to hold you on through the night.
Someone to wipe those tears from your eyes.
Someone who will be faithful and never say goodbye.

Think real hard and you'll figure out that someone is me.
Ill make you my everything to my heart you'll have the key.
Ill give you happiness ill make your fears be gone.
Because it seems like in this world we all need someone.

Very well spoken, I think we've all felt this, once, twice...and some still.
Great write 5/5

This poem has good use of parallel structure. It helps it have a good flow, and additionally because the rhythym of the poem is kept through the same amount of syllables per line. It gives the emotion of fear, but acceptance through love and trust.

I was having a bad day and my friend read me this piece, not only do I love the way they read it, but I love how you wrote this too. I think the rhyming scheme was interesting and they style you chose was well penned. Great use of emotion and wonderfully written

Thank you very much I appreciate that. I'm glad it could make you feel better. Someday when I'm upset I come back and read it as well.

Best wishes,
