Secret Beauty

I watch and admire your beauty,
as you walk down the hall,
Your long black hair, like a stallions swaying through the air.
I think about you every day even though I have no classes where I see you.

I try to communicate with you,
But no matter how much I do I am always nervous to talk to someone such as you.
Your perfect as you are proud, and standing alone,
When I call you it feels like forever over the phone.
I wish to be your friend, and for you to be mine too,
And I will be here to the end, no matter what you do.

You stand out from the croud, you dont talk too much or too loud,
Your beauty blinds the mortals, like a godess sitting proudly on your throne.
Your friends don't know how lucky they are to have you,
even bystanders notice you like a luminance glow as you walk down these corridors.

Your precence brings me everlasting joy,
even the grandest of festivals is diminished to no more when you arrive.
I would probably never tell you this as it could forever end our friendship,
but if everything else goes wrong,
then theres one fact that you can count on,
Its that i have always and forever will,
Love you

    Your description of this 'Object of your Desire' is outstanding!
    Favorite line....'You're perfect as you are proud, standing alone.'
    You obviously love her from a distance, which captivates your reader.
    Excellent! You certainly earned this '10.'

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
