Forbidden Fruit

A yearning to reach out
To touch what I cannot pursue
Must be buried deep inside
To avoid being misconstrued

Gazes shared across the room
One from me, one from you

Piercing through each other's eyes
To a place only the other knew
Inside a dark and endless chasm
To where hope lay but never grew

Aching for just a moment or two
One from me, one from you

Thoughts plague and roam my mind
While I try not to be consumed
However, I often think if you
As my own piece of forbidden fruit
