Pure Love

To look into your eyes
is but a dream for I shall
never see your face
nor hear your voice,
but your words
grip my heart and
claim it as your own.

Day by day,
every conversation,
our bond strengthens
and though I have never
felt your embrace,
your presence surrounds me
melting away my pain.

My love for you is true;
others judge our connection,
but love is often tainted
with the physical sensation of lust,
yet ours is pure, built simply
on a foundation of ourselves
with nothing in between.
