“If Only”

If only
We didn’t live a world apart
We could
Be together, and soothe
My aching heart

If only
I could see inside your mind
Your heart
See your feelings on display
Like I hope you’ll see mine

If only
You weren’t so perfect
So smart. Kind. Funny.
So beautiful
Inside and out.
I wouldn’t feel this way

Like I need to be with you
Just by you, near you
Such happiness it brings
To me.
To you?

If only
I could just make it go away
The longing
The hopeless want
But this is life
All I’ve got

If only this poem
Will express what I feel
Show the world what I mean
Someone must see
The one thing my mind shows me
Images of you, constantly

Your smile, your eyes
Haunt me
Won’t go away
Can’t leave me
Alone like before

If only
Writing this could ease the pain
Unbearable knowledge
It will never happen
So why write?
Why risk this exposure?

If only I knew
This could mean something
Not just to me
But to you, who matters most
You have to know
I would do anything

For you
If only you knew

Thanks for the compliments, and to Roganize: thanks for caring. I let her know how i felt (before reading this, but it's the thought) and it went as well as could be expected.
