Unlikely Marriage

An Acrostic Poem

Unless one looks out to see the other
never shall they meet.
Lost in self,
incapable of receiving,
knowing nothing of their petitioner's longing.
Even with their dance of romance
love goes undetected;
yearning remaining their only companion.

Many hours spent lost in introspection
amid doubts, fueled by rejection.
Reason departs,
relief found only in self-justification.
Imagine though,
attention to another.
Gaining insight by observation,
everyone can come to know love.
