For me, to love is to climb Everest, a cold and exhausting reality with a euphoric premise.

Love

Sometimes I see a person so beautiful to me,

that I can't help but fix my eyes and shuffle nervously.

Then I die a little more inside,

in the effort of protecting "familial" pride.

 

Occasionaly I see the person again,

and a weary glint may return to my eye,

But I never speak to them, I don't no why.

I'm so terrified of being found out,

so I walk an uncharted route.

Very nice. A poem a lot of people familiarise. You speak of a person in love and that they cannot help it inside. It does show us that no matter if it is the same or opposite sex, you cannot help who you fall in love with. Nice.
