Love From Afar

The man stares,
lonely,
across the crowded
room.
He pines for the lovely
dark-haired maiden
quite
oblivious to his
gloom.

Entranced by her
smile,
he has fallen in
love,
has been for
awhile.
He summons his
nerve
and starts across
the room,
but a man whisks
her away
leaving only a trail
of her lilac
perfume.

So close yet
worlds apart.
So he shuffles home
to nurse his broken
heart.
