I am aware that you are watching me. I see it in the way your eyes search mine,
letting your heart seek me out, hoping that Ill enter and see what you want me
to see. You cannot stop yourself from watching me as I go about my business,
even if it just simply sitting beside the captain, doing what I do best;
But you cant command your heart to stop, can you, Deanna?
You see me, and you cannot help but look further. I see you, but I dont
look beyond the surface. You are beautiful; black, marblesque eyes, ebony
cascades of hair, and a body oozing desire. My eyes briefly, inadvertently drop
lower, and I am aware of licking my lips. You see the action, and I feel your
despair, and denial, zip through me, reminding me that it is not that that you
You want him; the other me. I feel it when my mind is playing with you; when
your legs were wrapped around my waist as I crashed into your body. And as I
kissed you, murmuring into your mouth as we lost everything to the moment,
including our hearts and souls. But now, as I deny the situation, I deny your
pain. Wishes and dreams are all you have left to live on these days. Memories
are all I need to give me what I want; You.
For a moment.
Back then, I wanted what you wanted, but I dont want that anymore. I
love with you, a long time ago, even though loving you, was not in my plan.
Loving you, was not what I intended. Loving you, meant not leaving you. But I
had to. Cant you see that? Cant you understand? Forget and forgive me, please, Deanna. Let us not go back. We need to move on. We need to leave the past
behind. We need to forget what we were.
I cannot be the man you want me to be. Hes grown. Hes moved on.
recollection and shock stopped him in his tracks when he came face to face, and
heart to heart, with you again, realising that you still felt the way that I
didnt. I still feel your loss as you tried to step back in time, but I couldnt
go with you, not in the way that you wanted me to.
I remember how you felt against me. I remember a night of undeniable passion,
tenderness, and yes, damn it all, love, but that love has gone. The love I feel
for you now is different, and it is not the love that you seek, or want from me.
You want romance. You want candlelit dinners and roses. You want commitment.
Future. Family. Love. You want, Imzadi, and I cant give you that. I cant give
you every minuscule ounce of me, I just cant. Imzadi means too much - needs
too much, and I dont have it to give, and Im sorry, Deanna.
I said goodbye to Imzadi a long time ago, but you never could, could you,
Deanna? You never could.
