Watching From The Wing - Poem by Tygrr Robertson

From a distance,
you watch over me.
Sensing,
your presence.
I turn and look.
you are not there.
Feeling your
eyes,
thoughts,
upon me.
Wishing,
I could see,
you were there.
Knowing,
this is not,
some cruel,
delusion.
Friends,
companions,
lovers! !
All of these things,
were in our hands.
We cast all this,
to the wind.
Thinking
we could not,
want this.
We’re but just two fools,
in the night.
Hiding in the shadows.
Hiding,
from our hearts,
true desire.
