She Only Knows

He pierced her world without knowledge,
Her eyes dropped into her heart.
Soul fire ignited but he brought no pledge,
Her passion, she knew, she cannot impart.

Illusory imaginings run drunk through her days,
Oblivious, infectious shaking the fragile.
Sobering prompts, she stops, she averts her gaze,
He gives her a wince but she takes a smile.

Days rapt in the great expectation,
Her crushing desire urges them united.
Moments lost to the consuming revelation,
Because love is poison when left unrequited.

Her wail in the vacuum not heard,
The salute in the fog that leaves him unsighted.
A ship in the ocean without her dockyard,
Because love is poison when left unrequited.
