A Hearts Desire
I survived an isolated and mediocre existence only to flourish in your presence, where a hint of your smile brightens even my forlorn seclusion.
My envy of the wind is irrational for it merely caresses your lips.
Yet it has the freedom that I do not, as I long to openly embrace, but I can not for your heart belongs to another.
From afar I can dream of a love affair but for now your friendship means more to me than anything this world provides.
Like the knights of old you've shielded my heart with your gentleness in a way I've never felt before.
A choice has been made and my mind must accept that we are only friends in spite of that my spirit yearns for us to become more.
So I will anticipate and dream that one day again I can feel your lips pressed to mine and to hold you in my arms and hear the murmurs of two hearts beating with contented unison.
