Temptation: A Poem

I see you across the room.
The seconds slip by
The minutes pass into years
And the air between us is heavy.
I can't have you
But I want you.

Desire forces each breath
To hang suspended and
Captured heartbeats to
Await for the return
Of your gaze.
I can't have you
But I want you.

The way your hands linger
And caress the air,
It enthralls me
And I feel the snare.
I can't have you
But I want you.

Drawn closer each second,
I can't move away
From your eyes,
They pin me here.
You speak.
Ah, what do I say?
I can't have you
But I want you.
