And suddenly I want to kiss you
but not for the smile on your lips
or the expression on your face
not even the words on your tongue
or the thoughts on your mind
it's the person you could be
it's the person I see inside
it's the man I see
a man who is someone other than you
that creates these urges and wants
it's these memories of mine
that fix his face over yours
and suddenly you seem so close
to everything I want
to everything I need
but it's only an allusion
and you are you
he is him
I am me
and then the urges fade
as quickly as they came
this feeling is not for you
this passion is not for you
this love is not for you
so I turn away
and push the urge away
until you are away
and far enough to do
my heart and mind, no harm.
