i see you at night

i see you at night,
the curve of your back
and hear the weight of your cold-harried, well-worn step

i see you at night,
staring from the corner of your eye
furrowed brows creating undecipherable valleys between chocolate-colored romance

i see you at night,
endless waterfalls of curls and waves
covering thought and reaching out through unbreachable space

i see you at night,
standing still, moving all the same
creating turmoil in the wake of a missed opportunity to meet, to speak, to love

"And hear the weight of your col-harried, well-worn step."

That's a great line, and I think the first stanza is a real grabber. Brilliant work. This is a jewel.
