Her heart was committed to another
yet our attraction was obvious to us both
as we quite often pretended not to notice
for fear of being unable to control the desire
that saturated our thirsty bodies without warning.
Denial became useless every time our eyes would meet
and words would quickly disappear behind our smiles.
We were trapped in a situation that appeared to have
only one happy ending. Until she decided to be
a woman content with her promise. While I was
forced to be a man who would have to learn to
respect and live with her choice.
