As he wakes from a deep sleep,
He turns to gaze in awe at a photo
of the one he loves
with her plump pouting lips
as they glisten in the sun
In that moment he feels certain
she is his to keep
There is no doubt of this
No doubt at all
In his mind’s belief
She hides her deep love like a secret
and cherishes each day
that holds memories of moments
when he was filled with sorrow
and did speak, while weeping
of heartfelt longings
of a magical meeting
Love's joy lies in desire and fuels a blaze
When unattainable, intensity never fades
When loving arms are beyond reach
Love's longing is but a deserted beach
Distant love through passion's addiction
Consumes the lover beyond perdition.
