Secret lover

When i encourtered this woman I was fascinated by her voice and personality traits: laughter caught my attention-- her being alive and intelligence. We talked here and there but never met in person perhaps just a glance. I just feel bad and sorry because I tried to hide how I feel about her and don't intend to develop more feelings. I get intimidated by her approach sometimes and often make excuses to throw her off. I mean, there is no excuses for a bad behavior so I do apologise for making you feel that way. I am nothing compared to you and im unaware of things in my surroundings so in case you have not notice. There has been a lack of communication and therefore being judged too soon is difficult. I know you would forgive me if I say I deeply care.
