Lonely

LONELY


she softly whispered “i’m so lonely”
but i could not imagine why it was so
she attracted me like moth to flame
and i knew it must be so for many men
she met face to face from time to time
she shone so brightly, from inside out
and spoke bold, candied words of love
that ignited the flames of my passion


it was after contemplation i realized
she was selective of who was allowed
to come near her incomparable heart
she could not offer her surrender to
anyone who could not match her desire
and parallel the beauty of her spirit
hers was a large vision and expectation
one larger than life, scary to some men


i wanted to pull her much closer to me
to taste her warm lips would be heaven
to travel her curves with kisses of fire
and taste the salty sweetness of her skin
but i was not ready to match her depth
i still waded in the shallows of romance
unable to drown my memories and pain
watching afar, grieved by her loneliness
