Stolen Moments

Love finds a way...

In the eyes of another I would be thief.
It matters not to them of my own hearts grief.
Or the emptiness that dwells inside,
A hidden heart that long since died.

Lives half-lived with others twined.
Trophies set proud, polished and shined.
Yet something missing, an aching hunger.
A desire unfulfilled from a heart much younger.

Homes and lives left alone each night.
But the yearning won’t leave until it feels right.
Looking and seeking without really knowing.
A frantic heart forced to keep going.

Searching in secret, inhibitions are shed.
Feasting on the banquet of the internet web.
Testing and tasting every sight and sound.
Sampling the wares of each avatar found.

Destiny plays the strangest game.
Pairing souls that are the same.
Mated and matched as if from one.
An endless journey is finally done.

Our lives were lived in mirrors and smoke.
Now we meet in shadows and cloaks.
Separate lives kept secret and apart.
Keeping each other safe within our hearts.

Each moment together is precious and few.
Enduring the pain of being in love with you.
How could I not? I have no choice.
Because of you my life found voice.

Shouting inside I but whisper your name.
My path well-lit from the smallest flame.
Our secret lives becoming more real,
With each heartbeat we are able to steal.

In the eyes of others, thieves we may be,
For stolen moments between you and me.
It matters not what others may say.
We love each other, forever, always, and a day.
