I caught a glance but yesterday,
As he did look away,
It only took a second eye,
To explain it all away.
He might have fooled the busy crowd,
To thinking he was void,
But in eyes were hurt out loud,
It called her name- untoyed.
She never saw the pain inside,
She never heard the groan,
She never knew his love from pride,
So turned and left alone.
Again he spied her laughing lips,
And felt his own renewed,
And smiled at all the good times then,
His love, was warm renewed.
He yearned to reach and touch her now,
As he had done before,
His need so great he thought he'd die ,
If her, he'd see no more.
And then just as his fingertips,
Had touched the heart he graved,
A muscle broke the link in half,
And stole her love away.
