It was pretty innocent
Saying hi/hello and how are you at first
Exhanging pleasantries and jokes
Nothing serious, nothing momentous.
One day the humor stopped
Exchanges turned into intense chats
Before I knew it, I was falling and feeling it
I couldn't stop thinking about the havoc it creates.
The day we planned to meet
I couldn't explain the turmoil down my pit
It was crazy, but I was dying to risk
Just to give a picture to the guy I am falling with.
I could hardly breathe
My knees were shaking, my whole being was melting
His hands were firm, his eyes were piercing
I felt frozen despite the intense heat.
But, lo and behold
I had to stop in my tracks
The man I was slowly falling with
Cannot possibly reciprocate my sentiment.
His white robe spoke a lot
I took his hand and kissed it with respect
Even wondered if he felt my concealed secret
I wanted to scream, just to release my suffering!
