I glanced to my left and I saw your face. You were a fading memory my brain could not erase. I thought I saw you once before, standing over by the door. It was a precarious love burning a hole in my heart, a heated moment tearing my thoughts apart. I felt like I knew you all of my life, an instantaneous love my mind could not debate. I could not decipher why I was so attracted to you. My precarious heart was shaken, that much is true. When I looked in your direction a fantasy filled my head, how we could be together, but you turned away instead. It was a precarious love, for the time being it felt like it was real, but dreams are made of rubble, not of steel.
