hopeless Imaginings

January 3, 2011 at 4:15 PM (Poetry)

I tremble beneath your gaze

an experiment you wish to observe,

scrutinize my every move

yet this trial was voluntary, a  test

of my own will, one I painfully endure.

But for how long?

(when will you tire of me, or how soon

will I break under your watchful presence?)

May it be hours or weeks or years,

my heart will inflame with each ones passing

for the haze of green eyes (so deep

my soul slides in, engulfing me in heat)

that lies upon my self is plenty

compensation for my discomfort.

At this moment, my being longs to please you

(a man so great, my barriers are dropped

and submission has my head bowed)

and I think to reach out, to touch

the face of this power.

(Truly disappointment cannot poison my spirit,

this lithe, dreaming thing)

yet my hands feel nothing of you,

my soul sensing no life.

It is only my mind which knows of you,

this silly, frail thing..
