I Must Not Look

Where do I look?

I must not look at you.

You make me think

Of things I must not do.

I must not hear

The timber of your tone.

Although I’m out

It makes me more alone.

I must not feel

The fire of your touch.

It is taboo

And hurts me much too much.

I'll shut my eyes

And you will fade from view.

It breaks my heart

I must not look at you!
