My fascination, affection, affinity for you has been long standing and for the most part, unrequited. I thought that perhaps with time, maturity, distance, infrequent contact, this might take on a different nature, but it has been eighteen years and the us we always were remains unchanged.
I wake up only now to the fact that I am still that gauche 19 year-old to you. And to me, you are destined to remain a wish, only just out of reach.
… Entirely desirable, elusive forever.
