A continuation of "Crime"

Years have passed
since i've seen your handsome face,
one I could not,
     will not,
         soon forget.
     It lingers on my mind,
in my heart.

How quickly I fell in love
    with a stranger.
How quickly cupid shot me,
    like a bullseye,
with his dart.

And how quickly you were
    gone,
         vanished in thin air.
I turned the corner,
    and you were no longer
         there.

I wonder if you saw me at all.
    I could have sworn that
        your beautiful blue eyes
             met mine.
        Only feet,
    only inches apart,
Yet miles away.

You must have 
     got on that bus,
           or on that train.
I still search for you,
     to this day.
A face with no name.

Nothing to go by.
    Its a hopeless task.
        My mission impossible,
    but one I must complete,
till I find you, my love,
    I shall never be free.

Forever tormented by
    the memory of you,
         the longing to touch you
    to feel your embrace.
But night after night,
    day after day,
I return to this place,
    in hopes to see you again,
         in hopes to meet you.
         but you never show,
    as more days go by,
and I grow old.

I haven't loved a single man,
   since you.
Without ever touching my skin,
   you touched my soul.
This mystery unsolved,
   to solve it
       is my goal.

Would I even recognize you now?
    I'm sure I would.
Your face more distinguished,
    older now,
        through gray hairs
    and wrinkles,
I'd know its you somehow.

Those butterflies
   have been held captive,
      all of this time,
         waiting,
      anticipating,
   that moment when 
they would fly.

A heart left to find what was clear. A Love so beautiful and cold. I feel the light in your heart beating for another moment in a realm where time has no meaning. I love how you paint your words so tragic yet in a light only love can see. The depth of pain willingly suffered just to taste love again. Nikki, this is lovely.

Voting up and beautiful for lack of a better word.
