More than friendship

He’s out tonight with
the group
People he’s known for
years
They’ve all started as
friends
Some have joined
as one

But two play the
game
Dancing the tune,
up-tempo
Sometimes to more
that builds
An underlying storm
A crescendo

But then it fizzles
out
A candle in the
wind
A breath of a dark
Angel
A whisper over
shallow waters

Months pass in
darkness
Many more in
light
She’s always there
In visions
Always out of reach

Then they meet
again
On a day of joyous
celebration
He stares into her
deep brown’s
Melting like chocolate
again

She looks at him
and sighs
Seeing more than
she should
At the one who’s
always cared
At the one who
stayed away

She is with another
now
Yet her heart beats
to the dozen
For she knows his
heart
For it’s entwined with
hers forever more

And both hearts
break
For what they
can never have
For what they’ve
fought against
Always
Fantasy forever more…
