The poem I never wanted
vida

I look at you
 1
trying not to stare
 2
as my love for
 3
you I spare
 4
your eyes are blue
 5
your judgment fair
 6
 
 
you tilt your head
 7
and inside I flare
 8
and say
 9
as your eyes glare
 10
“I love you”
 11
with the most
 12
gentle care
 13
(all by myself)
 14
“I’ll let you go”
 15
 
 
I’m well aware
 16
and see you through
 17
eyes tightly closed
 18
your look I cannot bear
 19
my eyes too shy
 20
to look at…
 21
and very soon
 22
I forever wear
 23
that choice
 24
honestly alone
 25
