Watching You From Afar - Poem by Kay Barcelon

Watching a void from a distant
I caught a glimpse of you watching me
Our eyes met for one brief moment
And uttered more than words ever could

Your eyes are burning with passion
It revealed a feeling I never had before
I saw anger and longing at the same time
A very unsettling confusion I tried to ignore

You were walking towards me so unkind
With a stare that is still fresh in my mind
I saw the love and hate in your eyes
And wanted so much to hold you in my arms

You walked passed me looking back
Words are flying out of your mouth
Dissipating into thin air I was not able to catch
I am just sitting there feeling you as I watch

I finally got close to you and held you
And calmed your trembling body down
The trembling stopped and I felt the warmth
And tranquility that felt good in my heart
