The poem is below.


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

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