"Burning" My Imagination at First Sight
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!

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!
