Can You See It In My Eyes?

Afew years ago I fell head over heels for a friend. I wanted to tell him how I felt but was petrified it would ruin our friendship. All these emotions would stir when we were together. Writing this poem helped save my sanity. Maybe it will save yours.

Can You See It In My Eyes?
by Sandy Fioretti

You don't know how I'm feeling.
I have yet to vocalize
Desire deep inside me.
Can you see it in my eyes?

I tremble when I'm near you
Heat travels up my thighs
and I want you with an urgency
That I just can't describe.

Dare I reach out to touch you?
Do you think you'd realize
How much I want and need you?
Can you see it in my eyes?

I long to say, "I love you,"
But am scared of your reply.
Terrified like a child
I've become paralyzed.

The camouflaged emotions
Lead to pain and silent cries.
And yet I just can't tell you.
Don't you see it in my eyes?

Confessing through this poem
My dilemma summarized.
The feeling's quite cathartic,
But will lead to my demise.
