The Watchers

We are patient,
At a distance,
Secretly...
Watching each other.
A rare beauty,
Ominous,
A shadow,
Not completely...
We see,
Some of the other.
Enticing,
Alluring,
Tempting...
We are focused,
Falling,
Quietly,
Studying,
Discovering,
In love.
The newness,
A reveal,
We watch each other.
Wanting,
Longing,
Desiring,
We hunger to see...
Nakedness. 
Her nakedness...
A glimpse. 
We stare. 
Vulnerable... 
Do we watch? 
Okay to look? 
Do we dare see...
Even more?
