A Hug...

A friendly gesture of which he proposes
To her its nothing more then a simple hug
But is it just a simple hug to him? No.
Its far more then that.
Far more then she, or anyone could ever imagine.
As her body presses up against his.
As he gently places his hands on her lower back.
He feels her warmth.
Its warmer then anything in the world
A sensation so unimaginable, even he cannot grasp it.
Warmer then the sun, on a hot August day.
Far warmer then a mothers touch, to a newborn child.
And it is in that moment, of warmth, and satisfaction.
That he, a confused boy, finds the answers to all life’s troubles.
It is in that moment, where every problem seems to solve its self.
It is at this time, that the whole world stands still.
As he is complete.
If it is even for a few seconds.
To him
It seems as if a Lifetime.
She stands there still, with her chin propped on his shoulder.
She has no idea as to what it is he is thinking.
Is it lust?
It is love, in its truest form.
Innocent love, the love that has no limitations
For this love does not know how true it is.
He may only wish, that this moment, as it seems like a lifetime.
Could last, as long as 10 000 lifetimes.
But, he knows it must end.
As he knows she is unaware.
That his feelings are far greater then friendship, far greater then anything
It is at this time, the moment ends.
As she pulls away, their eyes meet.
A smile comes across her face
He conjured up a smile of his own
His smile is much different, as inside he feels sadness.
Rush over his body, like a Tsunami over a defenceless bay.
Because he knows, that it will never be.
He knows, that his love for her will never flourish.
And he will be left standing there, as if for the rest of his life.
And pondering.
What could have been…

A Hug...
