The end

Source: Journal ~ 2015

Affection for a close companion
Can grow should a spark
Be fanned into flame
- if a spark existed at all

So yes, I could reasonably 
Imagine growing 
Attracted to someone 
Based on a mutual friendship
Over a long period of time.
Good looks and physique
Have never been 
A precursor to attraction 
For me

I am mindful of the heart
Of another
- this is all I see 
On the skin and face
The smile and eyes
Come from within 

For the sake of joy
To preserve 
my future life and family
Shortly, my desire to live

I remembered what love 
Ought to feel like.
A careless abandon
That let go of

This ignited in me
A fire that can never
Be put out
