Love Unspoken

From the beginning of time, it always existed. Like gravity, it pulled; magnetically explicit. Undeniable connection, yet not a single word spoken, Leaving the mind to wander into unexplored oceans. A possessive beast he was, on guard like a glock, He’d find me in every crevice, I swear he watched me like a hawk. Sweet and charming in his affectionate ways, My heart always felt what he tried to convey. I miss watching him walk by from my bedroom window, If only God gave our precious time a pillow. This deeply rooted love never knew no bounds, Yet our rules of engagement now lie on restrictive grounds. A burning silence forced upon by complicated conditions, Bottled up a million words of beautiful admissions. I wish I could say all that I want to say, For now, I can only let the lyrics play. I wonder what he’d say if he knew, There's a million and one songs that my heart sings to you. You’ll always be mine, ‘til the end of time, My hearts on arrest, convicted of a love crime.

This was written about a childhood love that still exists today but we're both in relationships with other people so its complicated.
