Tis your foreign gaze that invades my soul.

It is an ember that seers my desires and enlivens a cascade of ecstasy and yearning.

Can fire resist the lure of the wind?

Could I resist the temptation to pierce the fragile skin of the forbidden apple placed before my lips?

For my heart and mind cease to function leaving my flesh with a cacophony of emotions urging me to return the gentle gesture.

Oh what mad affair is love?

It sets to task and chooses without mind, vexing mere mortals with its tenacity and will.

What cruel fate is this?

Tempted to love another and condemned to remain forever anonymous.

My love for thee can only flourish in another time, for you belong to your destiny

and I resigned to mine.

I take refuge only in loving you from afar, never to hold thy hand nor taste your lips.

Oh, how I yearn to reach the shores of your embrace, to caress your

face and feel our hearts beat as one.
