A poem about a relationship between two people who have never met yet feelings are as real as if they had.
Thinking about our veiled smiles
The beating of our lustful hearts
Our closeness, an intense intimacy imparts
What’s the point in all of this? Of us?
We can never be together
Our lives can never be forever
I brood and marvel at why we started
Was it loneliness or something more
That grabbed us, shook us to the core?
It’s an impossible situation to be in
Yet still we are wholly mesmerised
Imagined taste, touch, we apart cannot be prised
Day, night, breathing you in, needing you
Wondering what you’re in reality doing
Are you searching for me, every effort wooing?
Just when I surmise determined to pull away
You come back stirring feelings so strong
That I question all over, ‘Is this so wrong?’
You can never be here, and I never there
We have texts, messages, innuendos between us
An intoxicating drug, thirstily we drink, our daily truss
My heart races my skin tingles
My head is aching with the physical of you
But deep inside I know this can’t ever be true
