Before I can...

I reach out my hand
to grasp for yours,
but it's just not there.
I speak in words
of loves caress,
yet it falls
on deafened ears.
I wait for you
longing for your touch,
only feeling sadder,
as each hour passes.

An image
of the man I love
stands in front of me,
before I can...reach,
before I can...speak,
before I can...receive,
he turns and walks away,
as if his eyes were blind.

hoot_owl_rn: Thank-You, I was not sure if I really liked it, I felt a bit insecure about it I guess, but it was to late to remove, so I left it. Thanks again.
