I Regard You Day By Day

These days pass me by in a wild blur.

I’ve been consuming loneliness

for a destiny that’s self-assured.

~

Yet my existence is still harmonious.

~

I’ve compiled the pieces of this broken heart,

And attempted to reassemble it part by part.

Yet, it’s off to a slow start.

~

A sort of emotional numbness is ever-present,

as I meticulously plan for my life’s ascent

into a future that brings me far from my discontent.

I’ve no time for an ill-love’s poisonous torment.

~

Yet, against my better judgment,

I’ve spotted one angelic beauty from afar, 

and I pass a grazing gaze that makes its way

across her radiant face as I regard her day by day.

I hope she feels my warm eyes, but still, she slips away.

~

One day, she notices me noticing her, 

and I won’t allow my gaze to be deterred.

I want there to be a hint of the tenderness that’s brewing,

behind a timid heart, that’s subtly and provocatively pursuing.

~

I watch

~

I wait

~

And I hesitate

~

I suppose I’m just fearful,

for hope to slip into the past

and to feel rejected,

by an obsession

that was never meant to last.

~

Perhaps one day soon, but not today…

I have my eye on you

and I’ll find a way

to perform one very charming follow-through,

And see if it’s possible that you might feel this too…

  1. Well if she’s worth addending a comment…haha. Now that you’ve written this little gem, maybe you can find her outside of imagination? I really like the way this encapsulated my own journey to find the one. Nice work!
