My heart stops.
Beats again, but faster.
My eyes see you,
seals your image in my mind.
My ears hear your voice,
a sweet rumble that evokes unknown emotions.
My hands sweat,
the thought of touching you crosses my mind.
My feet freeze,
if i move i'll lose a moment with you.
My legs shake; my heart breaks.
Do you know how painful it is
to look at something everyday
and know you can never have it....
