Across The Room - Poem by Carlos Gutierrez

Watching you look across the room,
And to only find despise within your sight,
Makes me wonder if saying goodbye,
Will come back and haunt me,
And force me to pay the price.

Your smile still holds the antidote to my sorrow,
Your lips still sends shivers to my spine,
Your body I can still feel it in my dreams,
But I can't find it in myself to forgive you,
When you cry with arid eyes,
And when her name still lingers on your words.

The magic has never lessened,
I still desire to hold you near,
I regret making you feel obliged,
To protect me from my fears.

But human mistakes are to be forgiven,
I've prepared myself to forget the past,
Look ahead to the unpredictable tomorrow,
And to do everything and anything in these weakened hands,
To make you mine for a lifetime,
Or a just a fraction of an hour.
