One word from you stops my heart

But a thought begs it beat.

I think that it would explode

If we were ever to meet.

You are what love is to me,

An unattainable goal.

But striving towards your sublime beauty

Reminds me I have a soul.

In yearning, I stay alive,

Restless hunger fuels my day,

I know that I must survive

Because I still haven't found a way

To express my endless love for you

Or to illustrate my despair,

Knowing that I can never be with you,

Always single, never a pair.
