And when I see you
My heart skips a beat,
Walking out into the middle of the street
Without regard to the cars
darting through the intersection.
Some raising their fingers,
Others intentionally driving faster.

Remembering a time,
Remembering a place that
you were everything I needed.
Everything I could have wanted.

And when I see you
My heart so badly wants to
relive those moments.
Stepping one foot in front of the other.
Dodging near miss
After near miss.
Knowing that deep down
I'll end up getting hit
For not letting go

11
Formerly perceived to be two, which can be the loneliest number since one.
As sticks in the ground, define an infinite line dissecting  the universe.
The number of years of Jupiter's sun orbit, (I'm 6 six years old there).
The Canadian maple leaf has 11 points, (blades). (Oh Canada. Will you take me in?)
Some rock guitar amps can be turned up to 11, but I can't hear the difference from 10.
I could ride my bike across the intersection when I turned 11.
Just the facts man. Can you see my poetic mind is a tabla rasa?
