Your face has a sweetness
so deceptive to a keen eye.
It covers the desperate and false
ambitions within.
Your eyes penetrate with blank perception
and lay open
old wounds left by your indifference.
But how can I resist the very essence
of desire for to do so would belie the truth
it holds.
For the very scent of your skin
brings a weakness my heart has no
antidote for.
And your touch brings
peace to the ache within my body.
But departure brings with it the reality
weakness provided.
And I am left with
words only on paper writ
that tells of the moment that I should forget.

Hi, asubtlewoman,
A tale, well-told, of passion and the tender heart, with no antidote for love. Thank you for sharing.
Thank you all for your lovely comments. I have moved on which is why I am exploring this site and yes my heart is still recovering from lots of moments of disappointment but I think sometimes that is the test, to keep the heart open and not to shut out others even with the after effects of a painful experience.
