Across the Room
Noise echoes loudly
Bouncing off the walls.
Everyone talking a little louder
Trying to be heard over the commotion.
I sit silently
Barely moving my body.
The occasional movement would seem awkward
Like if a statue just stood up and started making conversation!
A headache forms from debating in my mind.
Across the room is filled to the rim
But the eyes of my heart glance to her.
Envy over takes me, and I feel empty inside
Life seems lonely without her near
Arms longing to wrap around
Lips waiting in anticipation
Will I ever succeed?
The temptation is overwhelming
But I do not move
And tomorrow I will undergo the same trauma
Forever a slave to cowardliness.
