Standing amongst others, yet we stand alone

My surroundings are darkened by you, a distraction

I constantly envy the wind that gets to touch you

My attention is grasped by the subtle attraction

I long to hear the melody of your voice play

But we only cross paths for a moment

But in that second I'm left clutching my chest

Afraid of the starved predators, the approaching opponents

When you walk past your presence demands my attention

I reach but you're too far to hold

When I see your emotions run cold in your face

It tempts me to comfort you and be bold

I know that my looks aren't meant to stand next to you

But will you blame me for what I feel for you inside

My breathtakingly beautiful distraction

With this love letter to you I say goodbye
