    Deep behind your sad eyes rests profound misery.
    On your handsome face is the ominous presence
    of torment you must have suffered for much of your life.

    When I ask if you are as lonely as I am, I hear
    a painful edge riding on the rasp of your voice
    as you whisper something I cannot comprehend.

    Your ice grey eyes glare through me as you brush away
    the lone tear streaming down your distraught face. I do not
    dare try to comfort you for fear my embrace wouldn't be enough
    to soothe the sorrow wrestling within your troubled soul.

    For a brief moment I long to know who you are, but
    I am afraid to reach out to you because I am too scared
    to love again. I can no longer tolerate this kind of pain.
    As I turn and walk slowly away, I force myself to accept
    your life story will forever remain unknown by me.
