I think of all that it could be
To lie with him so close to me
To feel his lips upon my skin
Tasting me yet once again
My fingertips outline the face
Of one whom I long to embrace
Through endless nights in solitude
I see his eyes beneath a moon
That we would share had I said yes
Yet I suffer to digress
Away from love for fear of pain
Now I am standing in the rain
When sunlight falls upon the man
Who reaches out to take my hand
As I stand trembling all alone
Wanting him to take me home
Yet once again I answer no
I am conflicted even though
I love him
