Indelible Impression


Impression

I didn’t dare to meet your gaze
unwilling to let you see
the longing in my eyes

I looked instead at your hands
resting on the table
but I didn’t dare to reach out
and hold them
for fear I wouldn’t let go

So I let you walk away
and held on to
the indelible impression
you made on my heart
