The love I cannot have.


At one point in my life
You were merely a memory,
One that I cherished so dearly
A breath in my life,
Our separation turned me numb
For years,  there was no one else I could love

But now that I’ve found you,
My biggest hope
From this timeline to the next
Doesn’t matter how many versions of yourself I have met,
It’s you I choose to love,

A flower in my garden,
Plucked when I least paid attention
The fading scent of her made my heart harden
Untill I found the flower on another man’s hand, withered and darken
I snatched the flower and all I could say to her; come back to me

And now we stand,
On opposite lanes of the world
Deep in my heart
Waiting for you to profess your love
But what I fear the most,
There’s no life in it, there’s no pleasure in me
Being your lover,
So speaks your eyes
Am I willing to lose a friend who I’ve known all my life,  to a lover I’ve got drawn to with time?
Or am I a coward enough not trying my chance to see what a life with me and you would feel like?

I look straight into your eyes
My lips freeze,
I can’t say a single word for now, my love .
