Look But Don't Touch

He looks at me.
His eyes are crinkling at the edges
As he smiles.
I smile too
Because he is beautiful
Because I have a desperate need
For him.

But he is not mine.
I get that now.
Look but don't touch.
These walled conversations
Are as close
As I will ever get.

I get that now.

He smiles again.
I build my walls higher.

This was one of those late night inspirations that I get often, being a terrible insomniac. Yes, it is based upon a real guy, and those are real feelings. Love is one of my greatest inspirations. I find that people have the most feeling when they are feeling for someone else, and truly great art derives from true feelings.
