These days pass me by in a wild blur.
I’ve been consuming loneliness
for a destiny that’s self-assured.
Yet my existence is still harmonious.
I’ve compiled the pieces of this broken heart,
And attempted to reassemble it part by part.
Yet, it’s off to a slow start.
A sort of emotional numbness is ever-present,
as I meticulously plan for my life’s ascent
into a future that brings me far from my discontent.
I’ve no time for an ill-love’s poisonous torment.
Yet, against my better judgment,
I’ve spotted one angelic beauty from afar,
and I pass a grazing gaze that makes its way
across her radiant face as I regard her day by day.
I hope she feels my warm eyes, but still, she slips away.
One day, she notices me noticing her,
and I won’t allow my gaze to be deterred.
I want there to be a hint of the tenderness that’s brewing,
behind a timid heart, that’s subtly and provocatively pursuing.
And I hesitate
I suppose I’m just fearful,
for hope to slip into the past
and to feel rejected,
by an obsession
that was never meant to last.
Perhaps one day soon, but not today…
I have my eye on you
and I’ll find a way
to perform one very charming follow-through,
And see if it’s possible that you might feel this too…
