Intense

Intense - these feelings rushing through me
each time my thoughts are turned to you
Immense attraction draws magnetically
while the moments found together are so few

yet no matter the distance, no matter how far
we move from each other, you're here
as if some brightly shining star
is ever drawing near

intense in its illumination
then I watch you back away yet one more time
when fear instead of inspiration
takes hold of movement of the heart and mind

and I cannot help but wonder why
I continue to reach out and try
to break through walls that only you can fell
built on the secrets only you can tell

yet even still I feel the trust
engendered by the joining of
our souls as if we really must
find the path to love
