Nostalgia Burns

What could this all be about?

You creep into almost all of my dreams. 

I just thought that I forgot about you again, or so it seems. 

I honestly haven't seen you in years. 

However, forgetting you never comes near.

You are fascinating to me. 

I'm passionate about even the little traces. 

I go through all of the phases. 

I feel the bliss, nostaglia and melancholy.

Oh, how I would impress you over and over.

Though outwardly, I'm just a loner.

Here we go again. 

The tears swell and it begins. 

Wow, this is so much more than I can handle. 

You strike a match in me and I melt like a candle. 

I long for fluttering eyelashes and eye contact. 

Yes, that look in your green eyes and my heart reacts. 

I long for the sound of our laughter.

Sometimes I think about it though it's long after. 

It's been a long time.

Even if I lose my mind, 

I'll never ever forget about you. 

You're in my flashbulb memories through and through. 

Lighting up my memory even after the wick burns out. 

This poem is about: 
Me
