in the shadow of you i linger

in the shadow of you i linger
more aware with each passing day
of your presence like a ring on my finger
a reminder of something more in play
in silence you press and i ponder
the desire for our eyes not to meet
for your touch away from me to wander
to never wrest my heart's final beat
mysterious you harbor all power
i see you draw closer in time
you are cold like a february shower
in reigning you speak like a mime
at last my dire pleading is dross
alas our inevitable paths shall cross

If I didn't know better, I'd think you are referring to _____. Ssshh. Nobody is listening. ;-)

I like this. It's very mysterious and depending on the perspective of the reader it has many possible meanings.
