Getting over a many-years-long crush that I did confess to, but never went further with. I'm over her now. Mostly.

It’s rare to see you nowadays

In dreams of now or old

Your face is slowly drifting down

Toward the memory hole


A church bell rings, somewhere far off

Morning mass commences

As I walk along, thinking of

My imaginary romance.


It was just a crush, they'd say

And who is they? Cause no-one cares

About my life / About my day

Despite my need to share.


Yes, of course it was just a crush.

But I’m obsessive like that so it still hurts.


I fucked it up.

The bell rings once more in the abandoned church.

Then, silence.
