Burning Effigy

by Soulful Ensemble   Jan 12, 2019

Special feelings came and stayed
As a days' labor made us one.
Many hours passed
And I still wonder on.
I looked deep within you
And learned so much by chance.
But I placed you with a match
Instead of as my own.
Here I sit with thoughts
That make me feel alone.
Presumptuous it may be,
And you would let me know,
That when I look into your eyes
I know there's something more.
So I sit hoping and yearning
For things that just can't be.
Another thankless effort
For a burning effigy.
