My love for you stretches far beyond the depths of my inner soul.
I eat, sleep, and wake thinking of you constantly as though an insatiable mode.
No other man can replace the love I feel for you.
I’ve tried and tried desperately seeking and yet always failing.
It’s you, the one I want, I need and I desire most of all in this life
A soul-mate, envisioned with relaxed tones of beauty and pleasure.
I ache so completely all inside with the knowledge of these feelings
seemingly bottled up forever.
Will I ever come to face you with the truth?
Who can hold back the tears of joy/pain as it streams down my face in recognition of you?
I love you truly, so much that it hurts.
And it will pang me even more to face you with my love.
