The Ache

I can’t help it, I’m wrapped up

in your energy.

Your eyes, so pretty and intelligent,

searching me,

trying to figure me out.

Friendship, all brand new, seeking

similarities, lovely details.

So many beautiful smiles

lighting up the room.

I fight the urge to touch your skin,

stroke your hair,

you are forbidden in so many ways.

A trace of awkwardness,

torturing me for days to come.

A friendly hug to say goodbye,

It has ended too soon,

I am left with profound ache.

The End
