An Unwilling Lover's Secret - Poem by Chiamaka Okorie

He smiles, a sweet seduction,
His eyes squint, my timeless memory,
Every curve on his lips are imprinted on my finger tips,
Lovely is the way he stares, with arousing secrecy,
He brings me love in plenty,
But I ever so frightened to indulge in such romance,
The possibilities are eternally bond,
Knowing that our love was never meant to flow,
Such love may never run dry,
But if we refuse to drink it's wine,
This only amounts to much heart ache and sorrow..

    'He smiles, a sweet seduction' like this line so much, this short poem is an organised piece, expressing the deep feeling someone has over his/her lover to be, but according to the poet she don't know whether this emotion will work out, but that will hunt so badly to refuse one this opportunity.good work.
