An Asymyotic Friendship

Written by: Raymond Westley

Why was it that you were so shy?
I have time and again crossed your path
Have I wasted my time trying to catch your eye?
When we were together we didn't do much
We laughed together, but reserved our space
Modern dancing can be subtle,
But gone is the closeness of touch
Expressing feelings in my dreams
Wasting away life in fantasy
It could never become a reality
In all those feelings there were promises,
All trapped in realms of imagination
Being free to go, or do as they please.

After all these years we drift apart.
All because,
Of our shyness,
We formed,
This fruitless,
