Love Hurts

Staring and gazing at her
from across the room
he hopes that she sees
what keeps his body & soul
and eventually his eyes
transfixed on her
he hopes that
shesomehow becomes aware
of his love for her

Unconsciously, with silent
gestures of friendship
she seems to entice him
with mixed signals
every time she would
look at him while playing
flirtatiously with he her hair
or that sparkle in her eyes
everytime she looks at him
with her beautiful-radiant-smile

So, he takes a few
momentary glances of her
from across the room
and with each glance
tries to convince himself
that each one was the last
but rather, finds that,
his statuesque-face
is captivated by her
picturesque beauty!

It's then that he slowly
and reluctantly manages
to break his glaze-like-face
freefrom her mystical-haze

It was in that
awkward moment
that he often
wondered and sometimes
pondered...
whether she could be
secretly as madly in love
with him, as he is with her!

So, he gathers enough
courage to asks her
out on a date
only to discover that;
SHE SEES HIM JUST AS FRIEND
AND NOTHING MORE THAN THAT!

    Because of how detailed this story is played out and how abrupt the conclusion was, I felt as if this story was told by the man.

    she seems to entice him with mixed signals but sees him as only a friend nice imagery but somewhat sad
