But it was not love


I know it was not 


for me, at least 

I know it could not have been for you 


it was an intolerable 


between two strangers 

worlds apart 

driven by pure curiosity and 

hungry eyes that could never be 



for the fleeting seconds 

that we tried to grasp 


that was never ours to have 


that was always out of our reach 

I would slip through your fingertips

and you would be too scared to try and

hold on

    Sweet, insightful poem, mylittleheart. Love the phrase, 'intolerable infatuation'.

    Good write. Fleeting moments can be so meaningful yet so painful.
