If I had to, I would go back to chasing you.

And no, that thought is not about the “thrill of it all." 
I just really like you that much. I’d do the whole thing over again, changing nothing. Except maybe, finding every way to spend all the moments we didn’t have together, 

together.

Because for all eternity, in every state I’ve been, 
there's "you"
(I swear I’ve spent each moment with the thought of you
inside my head. you're an idea i've never shaken.)
the glimmer of your being sparking somewhere

possibly, too, particles of my past bouncing about
kinetic energy with only you in mind. (I don’t know how science works, but right now, 
it’s as I say)

I won’t ever stop.
I'm running.
