Disappointed Eyes

Could you look me in the eyes?
My mistake is easy to repair!
Don't treat me so coldly, do not despise
Simply because the crack was large.

I have made bigger holes in life,
Fixing the damage is hard enough.
Please understand my strife
As I try to regain your trust.

This blunder is not my first or last.
I cannot contain my fear any longer.
Admitting I need your help so fast
Is unfair, but I have no choice left.

Know the pain I feel at each turn
When you snap, and your freezing eyes burn.

I know you love me no matter what
But it is difficult to remember when your heart is shut.
