The shadows betray,
Alleyways are not the place for them.
Fidgeting with that single strand of hair
Twirled across her sombre face
He feels the moist cheeks
His eyes betray none what his heart holds
Its a lost cause he says
She dreams thus wide awake.
What is it about wanting what you cannot get
Praying for the one who knows not of what you crave
Was it the same always, will it remain such
Will they ever know the path.
He watches her, but does not see.
