Blind Love

I want you more than I should

I want to reach out more than I could

Always afraid of that step, a coward 

The fear of that distance has soured 

Perception of love perhaps devoured 

Even still I am not above temptation 

Even against my better deliberation 

I find myself looking toward participation

Looking at an open door awaiting an invitation

Apprehensive. Stuck pensive 

The cost of waiting is always too expensive

Here I sit though, the care of these words intensive 

Because such a simple procedure feels so extensive 

Waiting to watch the opportunity pass 

So unfortunate I’m stuck on one sided glass

Yet somehow at an impasse

Fortune’s fool has taken me to class 

If only this was an age of poetry among the mass 

For then my words could feel as the grass 

Does through the spaces of your toes 

Unless you’re not a fan, who knows 

As the story of blind love goes 

My attempts seem to go 

As far as the feather throws

Ah It would appear as I try the confusions grows

A fan of your happiness is all I hope this shows.
