Secret Admirer

Watching you,
Watching you,
I dreamed of a day
I could hold you.

Smelling you,
Feeling you,
Just being close to you.

There for you,
There for you.
I’m here to protect you.

I remain.
Content with watching you.
Silently watching over you.

Dreaming of you,
Dreaming of you,
Of the scent of you.

Suppressing my desires
And fantasies,
My wishes of you,
I stand by you.

Here to protect you,
Here to support you.

Here to lay down my heart,
My life for you.

For you are my queen,
And I, your knight.

A man forever indebted to you,
Forever belonging to you,
Forever respectful of you.

A man that will never leave you.
A man that will forever love you.

This short fiction was inspired by the fans and publications that have supported me up to this point, and the “A Word A Day” writing prompt from the “Promptly Written” Publication for February 16th.
