"when you cry, do you waste your tears?" Madonna


Singing Dancing Acting

your eyes shadowed

me every movement

yet
shadows are not of flesh

not

kissable
by any measure.
Practicing my lines,

I know what to say

but
things between us were unscripted
your inquisitive glance

set me in a trance
unable to contain my inward smiles
and words of romantical thoughts.

Crave for physical contact
a clash of words never said--
just smears of shadows on flesh

untouched,
a sript never read,
thoughts kept in an alternate
reality of the corroded
spaces of my mind.

If only
courage was a tangible entity
for me

If only
confidence was an addiction
easy to answer

If only

you

could've

given us a
chance.
