Reading between the lines

***

I fear to look at you,

It may make you conscious.

I fear to look away,

It may make me anxious.

***


***

Do you think you know,

how hard it is to do?

listening for a tune,

in pouring drops of dew.

***


***

Open your eyes and see,

they finally do meet.

***


***

The delight on your face,

after that stealthily gaze.

One thing, I assure you, my dear,

that timid behavior is your unsung savior.

***


***

You cannot be a destination for her

when you are a journey to yourself.

***


***

Take me back to when

we carried more questions than blames,

Into a dark den,

to walk away from superficial shames.
