Hidden Desire

She listens…
But she does not hear my 
thoughts,
She listens…
But she does not hear the 
pounding of my heart,

She looks…
But she does not see my gaze,
She looks…
But she does not see my soul 
drift into her eyes,

She stands close…
But she does not feel my arms 
around her,
She stands close…
But she does not feel my 
breath caress her neck,

She walks away…
My head falls,
She walks away…
She will never be mine,

    Oh the sadly beautiful words that flow from a gentle heart in this write Paul my friend! So heartfelt and gentle .So sad to think one looks but doesn't see the gaze of a heart that adores her so. I loved this beautiful write of yours.:)

    A very intense emotional piece Paul... luv the verbs...in the beginning of each line..each verse... then the line following to utter dismay of the person who is intent with feeling.. enjoyed with luv..
