I wonder if you understand
The power held within your hand
That burns into my very soul -
I wonder if you know..........

That I can see through your disguise
The fire burning in your eyes -
Reflections of your deepest thoughts -
I wonder if you know..........

That I've become a part of you -
The something that you always knew
Was waiting just beyond your reach -
I wonder if you know..........

The passion burning in my heart,
The love that's tearing me apart,
The dreams that never can come true -
I wonder if you know..........

That I would give all I possess
To linger in your sweet caress -
You're everything that I desire..........
I wonder if you know.

Linda, Are you supposed to tell people things like that? How do you expect to keep your feminine mystique ?
A heartbreaking scenario! Encapsulated in poetry that matches the delicate passion of a secret love. Top notch writing as ever. jim xx
