You Bamboozle Me

I am an abomination
Worthy of your scorn
There can be no affection for one such as I
I will never know your passion
I am left yearning
I struggle to hold onto the possibility of us
My attempt is but a foolish dream
Still I cherish the sound of your voice
I value this bambooziling relationship
The flame of you is engraved on my heart
I taste your scent on my lips
I long for your tender touch
My inner soul crys out
If I receive but one kiss, my heart will fully bloom

    I had to use all the words for the dictionary contest. Glad you liked it. Bamboozle was a tough one to use in a sentence.
