Absolutely Everything

My eyes behold her loveliness,
my fingers itch to scratch 
what can't be scratched. 
I cry out in quiet desperation, 
just a glimpse of her face 
has me begging for a taste 
of her sweet mystery, 
her moods of curiosity and wonder. 
I can speak her mind, 
taste the yearnings in her heart 
and touch the essence of her soul,
yet I'm not permitted in her presence, 
can't address her hopes and fears,
so I must wander lost in unrequited 
love for the woman who means 
absolutely everything to me.

    What the French would call 'douleur exquise'... The exquisite pain of loving someone you simply can't have. Masterfully done my friend :)
