Don't let anybody tell you who you are; don't let anyone tell you that you don't deserve what you're willing to work for.
Never give up; you\'ll never know how far you could go until you try to get to where you want to go.

It was the classic fairytale;
you were my Prince, You saved me...
From the scariness of life, time;
through everything wrong, you made them right.

Our first kiss, in "The Land of Lost Time";
butterflies flyin' at the speed of light,
you held me so tight...
and at the end of the night...

I said, "take me with you";
as you went on your way;
I wasn't ready to let you go...
I wanted a few more moments before the night went away.
Take me with you;
a perfect first kiss with my prince
swept me off my feet, promised you wouldn't leave....
and so you said, you'd take me with you.

Then reality set back in,
I was moved to the sideline.
I let you live your football life
I said I was fine. I lied.

I saw the way they looked at you...
you had a ring, yet, you still weren't true.
I forgave and forgave, because I loved you,
but I still remember always asking you (to)...

Take me with you.
I've waited and watched every Friday night.
Cheering you on with every touchdown and slide...
Did you remember I was waiting for you?

I said, "please, take me with you"
you told me there was no need to worry,
I was always gonna' be your baby,
but lied to me.

You learned my secrets over three years,
figured out why I'm guarded;
but baby, YOU'VE changed and now I ask you...
Was I EVER where you heart was?
Was I EVER not on the sideline?
Was I EVER the one in your mind?
Was I EVER the one you cheered for?

There's a drawer of your things at my place,
I make believe it was all just a beautiful nightmare...
But the pain remains everytime I think of our special place,
everytime, in my mind, I see your face...
I'm so tempted to call you just to hear your voice and say,

"Take me with you,
Right now and we could run away...
we'll leave the past for another day,
we can fix what went wrong and never let it fade...."

But then I remember your sad eyes,
with tears rolling down your cheeks,
when you said you didn't want me,
because someone else is your baby.

My heart shattered,
my world crumbled...
I finally tried to hold myself,
but my voice breaks as I tried to say...

"Please, take me with you.
I love you, I want you,
more than those girls do.
I can love you forever...
through the storms,through whatever.
Cause' 'you and me' was supposed to be forever...
and you hold me together.
Trevor, I need you.

Take me with you,
please don't walk away from me...
from what we have, and all our dreams.
Please don't do this, please don't leave.
Without you here, it hurts to breathe.

I don't understand, babe...
why can't you take me with you?
Please... just take me with you.

The author's comments:
I think this piece shows a different side to me. I write alot about becoming stronger through each breakup or any other obstacle in life... but I never really show just the vulnerable side. I love this piece because it shows what everyone really feels sometimes through breakups...they know it's for the best, yet, they still want the person who broke their heart. That's what I tried to portray with this. It was actually a journal entry-turned-poem, but I love this piece and hold it close to my heart.

5 stars worth :) Everything flowed into place. It's indescribable but I loved it :)
