Heather Burns


Can This Be Love?


I watch you across the room
Thinking your gorgeous

longing to approach you
touch
feel your skin

notice how your clothes
fit your body
I undress you with my eyes

perfect balance

the way you smile
little gestures you make

makes me blush with desire

I get nervous when our
eyes meet

my candle burns brightly

I long to get acquainted
know you better

when looking at you I see
perfection

everything I have ever wanted
looks back at me
can this be love?
