WATCHING YOU

I watch you
And you don't know it
I see your loneliness
And it touches me
I watch and secretly wish
Things would be otherwise
I'm not indifferent to
The way you can't bring yourself
To come to me and face me
You're ashamed and realize
If you'd be worthy
I'd have you
But for the life of you
You can't get a grip of yourself
So I just continue 
To watch and secretly wish
Things would be otherwise

by the way, please don't feel like you need to read a lot of my poems every day. I appreciate it but I don't want anyone to go out of their way!! I need to do my exercises for the day so I am going to read one more on your very first poetry page and call it a night. Thanks for your sweet consideration today, Line. By the way, did I ever fave you as a poet? I must see if I have done that.

Helloooo... does anyone feel obligated to do anything here? You are quite the comedienne. Time is so limited, we only have time for what we judge to be priorities.

Line, did you have another marriage where you had to deal with a bad partner. I know you have your prince now, but it sure sounds like you know this kind of person well. This type of person is just so SAD.

This was about a lovely person who had a crush on me but had his own demons to deal with.

Nicely written. Loved the last two lines as it ties into how I feel in during my lonely times.
