      To the person I wish I could love,

      Sometimes, I look up to the same stars,
      Comparing them to the ones in your gaze
      Yes, the gaze I’d never known
      The gaze I long for,
      The very looks I wish we could share across a crowded room
      The eyes I’ve seen so many times when I go to sleep
      Assuring me with glances that all is well with the world

      Sometimes, when I am alone,
      I twist and untwist my fingers,
      Wondering if you do the same?
      Do you pretend to hold my hand too?

      Or is that awful?
      Is that weird?
      Is that abnormal for a person to be imagining?

      Sometimes, when the nights are the coldest
      I like to imagine you’re here at my side
      That we share pleasant memories
      That maybe, just maybe, I am not as alone as I picture myself to be

      Dearest muse that eludes my quill,

      Do you like the words I pour out of my veins?
      The ink that smears across the paper,
      Carved out of my very soul with all the tenderness of a martyr

      Do you?
      Can you?
      Will you?

      Will there never be satisfaction in the sentiments you spin,
      The critiques you spit
      The woes you slur
      How – when – tell me,
      What will please you?
      These words are all I can regard you with
      In inspiration,
      In adoration,
      In all of it

      To the one staring back in the mirror,
      You needn’t look so far for love after all
