Turning Away

Turning Away

You stand in shimmering light,
with your wavy hair and sparkling eyes
enchanting all who cross your path,
while your dazzling white smile
hypnotizes the world, drawing people
to you like a magnet,
and your aura of charm
entices all the men you meet,
capturing their weak, fluttering hearts,
and dropping them at your feet,
where they grovel in pathetic infatuation.
In the dark grey shadows I stand,
lost in a forgotten corner
where I burn, sweat, tremble and cry,
silently praying to anything;
begging and bargaining
like a grief-stricken widower.
There is a chasm of black emptiness between us
that can never be filled and never be crossed,
and so I'll turn away... I'll go... I'll leave.
I can no longer stand here alone and unnoticed,
watching you with this sick, fiery desire
that consumes my heart and incinerates my brain.
So I'll turn away... I'll go... I'll leave.
If only I can convince my eyes to look away,
and my feet to take that first step.
