This work has reached the exceptional level
When feelings don't matter
"Us" by the13thpoet
How did I let myself get caught up
In this whirlwind romance?
Like a moth to a flame
I never had a chance

From that first kiss
A seed of love had been sewn
I didn't think it would end like this
How could I have known?

And yet the times that we shared
I will never regret
Enjoying each other's company
As we watched the sunset

Listening to good music
And kissing for hours
How my love for you bloomed
Just like a flower

Anxious and nervous
Of what may come next
It was about being in your presence
Never about sex

Though you may have wondered
If my feelings were true
I really do love you
And wanted you to love me too

But when professional things
Required your attention
What we shared
Wasn't worth a mention

I miss your hug, kiss and touch
I guess I'm an addict
And it hurts to look at you
I guess I'm being dramatic

Though my words and feelings
Are truly sincere
I now know they mean nothing
Compared to your career

And yet my heart won't forget you
No matter how it tries
But I can't bring myself
To look you straight in the eyes

Though I try to ignore
All the time that we spent
The memories flood back
Whenever I catch your scent

I know my feelings don't matter
But my feelings I trust
The feelings that were
The beginning and ending of US.
