Stealing Glances - Poem by Abossey Allotey

I desired to behold her face
But she turned away a single pace.
I desired to get close to her
But she would no glimpse spare.
She's refined - a kind so rare
And would me call 'dear sir'.
Unannexed - that I'm aware.
But why?
Why won't she with me share
Her love and beauty - not fair.
Seeing her take the air - unaware,
I would stand a distance to stare:
Comely - I would none compare.

This' my sincere plea:
That she would my heart see.
Thus to make my heart glee.

    Beautiful. Like a true poet you bring a longing, as experienced by so many of us into very melodic verses.
    A true work of art. I fully enjoyed reading it.
