The Heartache by Christian Schloe

A free verse

A touch,
A whisper,
A glance,

You draw me in
You pull me to you
An attraction so strong
That resistance just feels like I’m falling.
Or…failing, I’m not sure.
I’m never sure these days.

I’ve become a mess
Trying to control my thoughts and actions.
I don’t want to feel this way
I don’t enjoy hiding these feelings
but I can’t stop myself

From hoping, wishing, thinking
I say maybe if I do this,
What if I act this way?
What if I break myself down?
Will you love me then?
Will you acknowledge me?
Will you talk to me like I’m anyone worth your time?
Will you leave your wife to be with me?
