Confession

I have stared at you more than once from the corner of my eye

I have found myself smiling because you did

I have watched you sip your drink, wipe your brow,

turn the page and your eyes grow

I have wondered about that

About you

What are you reading?

What are you thinking?

I have caught myself staring at you

And suddenly turned to my own book

You have never once turned to me

I have admired you for being so oblivious of the world around you

I have hated you for being so oblivious of the world around you

And most of all, I have heard a rumor about you

A rumor of how you fell for a woman

Of how she purred her way into your heart

Of how she left your hurt

I have looked at your eyes, and there is no pain there

Only hope

How do you do that? Hope?

Because I was burned once, and I will never love again

Except maybe if it’s you
