Loitering in my subconscious,
For me to awaken,
When I would be filled with fleeting contentment.
I want to admire you from afar,
To dwell in your mystery,
To ponder on the unknown.
I do not want to come too close,
I will keep my distance,
As I watch you,
As you burn hot like a flame in the depths of my mind.
Fear mixed with longing grip me tightly,
Rendering me immobile,
As I watch you from the outside.
I will not come close.
You will remain a dream to me.
