She was now forever trapped
in that vacuum sealed moment
in which they first met…
she had to be in denial of her feelings for him
if she didn’t want to depart from her peace of mind…
loving him was a struggle with herself
and a surrender too …
his pull was too strong to resist
and her will too weak…
but she cannot give in for
how does she hold him
when he feels the need for warmth
the whole world being the distance between them…
but then she was ready to cross that distance too
if her words would suffice…
for she had only words to give…
to win his heart…
or would these very words jeopardize
her hopes of a possibility of an intimacy
she wanted to develop with him…
would these words become a web
in which her appeal suffocates and dies
or would they become the bridge…
….she wondered…
