"Burning" My Imagination at First Sight

Updated on March 25, 2012

"Burning"

It happened on a Friday

Just as we said goodbye

A desire to reach and touch you

Without the knowledge of Why

But as I thought of you

Lingering like something Past Due

I had to write a poem

Of which I seldom give clue

The words used are not enough

And yet anymore might mask the touch

So I looked at you with good intentions

As words unsaid were meant to be mentioned!

Afraid to reveal more of me to you

Hinting at the object of my desire

It's what went unheard by the Two

Which lit the imaginations of my mind on Fire!

@ Gregory Booker


Inspiration: A word may go unspoken...but the emotion will burn the soul because of it. For the man who kept silent with his desire....in her midst!
