Read Poem: SECRET ADMIRER, by Heath Bernstein

Auburn eyes
Skin of milk
Hair that twines
Like vines of silk…

Won’t you be
My Valentine?
Won’t you be no one’s
But mine?

Won’t you live
Inside my head
And haunt me
While I lie in bed?

I don’t know
I do not know
I do not know
If you will know

That I’m the one
Who wrote this text
And if you do
Then what comes next?

If you unveil
That I am me
What then becomes
Of us and we?

Will you and I
Become a pair
Or will my hope
Become despair?

It’s hard to know
It’s hard to see
If what’s ahead
Is you and me

But feelings
This intensely tense
Go far beyond
The bounds of sense…

So sense is out,
And logic too,
I will not stop
‘Til me and you

Have elevated
Passed defeat—
Two separate hearts
Within one beat

A sum much greater
Than its parts
A bond that’s born
Where passion starts

I’ll wrap you up
And hold us tight
Until our flame
Consumes the night

And from the ash
Our love will rise
And soar throughout
The cosmic skies

No one can stop
What’s meant to be
No one can stop
Our Destiny

Just me and you
And you and me
Just we and us
And us and we

No one can stop
What we will be—
Together through
