Poems in English

Admired

Admired

Strange how deep under her skin he is.

She only knows him through his distant admiration

Across darkened dance-floors and concert halls.

His desire waterfalls down her spine,

Unnerves her, his heart’s poetry

Troubles her through his hungry eyes.

She finds herself looking out for him,

Wonders how much she likes to be admired,

How much she’s learning to admire?



Poem Admired - Juliet Wilson
