For The One I Cannot Have - Poem by John Paul Ang

I may have fallen in love with you,
Though i know i can never have you.
Because we haven't even once met,
and this is the closest to you i can

I know you can't love me,
because we were not destined to be.
You belong to someone perfect
And i know that this love you will

I haven't looked in your eyes
I haven't touched your skin physically.
You have never even heard my voice,
and it was not me who made that choice.

I don't have the opportunity to meet you,
to prove that this love is true.
I can only hope and wait
that i am be allowed by fate.

I can feel that you are really far,
Much like a distant shining star
That i can only gaze upon but not touch,
Only existing in my dreams, as such.

You are perfect and i am not,
I cant even show you what I've got.
Your mere presence could melt me away
like wax under the sun's burning rays.

Loving you felt like a crime,
Persecuted by chance and by time.
But i'm willing to risk my all,
For you, i will gladly give my soul.
