Hidden Desire

Written by: Paul Shaw

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,
