Attempted Denial

That day was a momentous one by all means of reckoning
A day the likes of which aren't oft recurring
Indeed the portents were good in its eager coming
I have since wondered if it'd ever be repeating

But I never saw you
You were never there
I never once intended
On catching sight of you

The wayfarer's call greets me in my endless wanderings
Like a madman in the streets I'm ever roaming
And yet in the midst of all this I can't help remembering
Our solitary adventure in that momentous meeting

But I never saw you
You were never there
I just want to forget
Any recollections of you

Can I help being so unwary in my cursed emotions
Or should I have tried to stop what was already in motion?
Impaled and cut deep by the wounds of passion
I tried but I cannot suppress my heedless reactions

But I never saw you
You were never there
I don't even want to think
That I could ever love you

I never tried to even contemplate how things should be
At all times I was immersed in matters pertaining to me
And yet now I realise as anyone could see
That something strange and unusual has happened to me

But I never saw you
You were never there
It's just not like me
To feel this way about you
