Impossible Love 
To grasp what an impossible love truly is, 
Not everyone can fathom, only those who've lived it. 
The strange emotion that is called love, 
Is known and felt by those distanced, who've felt it. 
In an instant, it comes, taking you by surprise, 
You find yourself enchanted by a stranger's eyes, 
Unknowingly, your heart takes flight and flies, 
To love is something only the heart implies. 
The delicacy of a rose's velvet touch, 
The beauty of a leaf with a grace that's such, 
The blush of your cheeks, a sight to clutch, 
When your hands tremble, that feeling, it does clutch. 
The glances exchanged, like lightning's sparks, 
Eyelashes fluttering, like burdens in the dark, 
Your heart flutters wildly, like a mad lark, 
This state, only those in love can embark. 
When you gaze at their picture, lost in thought, 
As the caravan of memories passes, unbought, 
And separation's inevitable, as it is sought, 
The years of longing, in your heart, are caught.
