I Thought Perhaps I Saw

I thought perhaps I saw
the flame of future in her eyes,
but it was fleeting.
Snatched away before it could yield
the unquestionable truth.
Recoiled the recesses of her fortress mind
in well-rehearsed protection.
A chameleon adept is she,
so changeable of mood,
alert to any, small release
from her vast reservoir of emotion.
Perhaps I shall breach the dam,
and we will ride the deluge
in open and honest love.
Perhaps she is impregnable,
wasted, lost to me?
That is such a sad thought.
