Love Poem: How Can I?

How Can I?

You don’t know how I’m feeling,
I have yet to vocalize
Desire deep inside me.
Can you see it in my eyes?

I tremble when I’m near you 
Heat travels up my thighs 
And I want you with an urgency
That I just can’t describe.

Dare I reach out to touch you?
Do you think you’d realize
How much I want and need 
Can you see it in my eyes?

I long to say, “I love you,”
But am scared of your reply.
Terrified like a child 
I’ve become paralyzed.

The camouflaged emotions
Lead to pain and silent cries.
And yet I just can’t tell you.
Don’t you see it in my eyes?

Confessing through this poem 
My dilemma summarized.
The feelings quiet crazy
But will lead to my demise.
