Admired from afar

Admired from afar

A Poem by A Drawer of Paper Roses

Inspired by my day

I idly played with the doorknob.
Bored, as usual, just as any other day
It felt like the life was being sucked out of me
That is, until you came
If only you knew what you do to me
It was funny, you had to call my name twice
First, I didn't hear you, distracted by the doorknob
Second, you yelled my name louder and there you were
You were like the blazing sun, burning the darkness out of my soul
Your presence had instantly brought joy into my dad
If only you knew how I felt
Every time I see you, you're smiling
And that's while I smile.
We talk, we chat, ask how each other is doing
I loved the harmonic tone in your voice, always joyful, always funny
Your bright smile that makes the sun itself jealous.
My darling, have I ever mentioned how beautiful you are?
But I know I'll never have the chance to say it
Then she calls you, away from me
With one last smile, you bid your farewell and leave
As quickly as you brightened my day, when you left it dimmed again
If only you could feel the same way
And I return to the doorknob, going off into emptiness
A silent tear ran down my cheek
But I didn't notice when you turned around
But I did notice when you hugged me.
Maybe you do know
And you hugged me
And I hugged you
Maybe you knew everything all along.
Just maybe
