I wanted to ask, inquire, request?
But the block, barriers you’d erected
Are not easily negotiated.
They said you are difficult
Remote, distant, are compliments
Mysterious and enigmatic are givens.
I am questioning my pursuit of you
Am I desperate, needy, stupid?
I fear I am locked into you.
Speaking to you, was such an effort
Your eyes betrayed your curiosity
My words bouncing off you.
Beneath your removed exterior
As beautiful as it is, yet impenetrable
There lies a generous and kind soul.
I know as I have seen you in action
Your response to disaster, you put in
When you thought no one was noticing.
Its at people you have issues
For people no problem, you’re saintlike
But to me you are closed, shut down.
I am determined to stay with you
I see you for the good person you are
An asset, even if you can’t see it.
So maintain your guard, your key hidden
I will continue my vigil, outside looking in
For patience is a virtue.
