My Eyes Adore

by Shawnta Cannon

I admire you from afar
Afraid to approach you
Fearing that you'll break my heart
Or my pride
So it's kept all inside
Nobody knows it but me
So I watch you
Adoring what I see
Wondering who's loving you
And if their love is true
For the first time
In a long time
I've acquired a crush
But won't rush
To become intertwined
In  your mind
I need to know your thoughts first
What do you conceive of me?
A dream? A maybe? Or just misery.
The state of your being
has me seeking you out
wanting to know all
of what your person's about.
Will I ever...
Can I  ever,
Admire you forever...
