Just So

From quiet longing trapped within a mind,
A perfect cadence cut into the source.
Emotive release that saw the unwind
Of long-kept secrets, freed with little force. 
Him, her eager passion personified;
Conventions of attraction mocked, dismissed.
Entranced by the authority kind-eyed,
She lurched into confession whilst amidst
The melancholy. She'd never have thought
Reciprocation stood the slightest chance;
Society itself would damn the sort
Of subtle beauty in the poets' dance. 
Such love does not need questioning of 'why',
Yet even so, she hears the woodwind sigh.

The End
