I would give myself to you completely...

Even though you are nothing but a bittersweet memory now

Forever out of reach, untouchable

But from the very moment I first laid eyes on you

My heart refused to keep rhythm

And still, years later

Each time you pass me on the street as a stranger

My eyes continue to linger on the simple memories I have of you

Though our interlude was brief

It was painfully etched on my soul

And I hate myself for not forgetting you

For holding on to the hope I had

That you would think of me the same.
