Magic numbers float
In my brain,
Sitting uselessly,
The sparks unkindled.
Fascination, stillborn, is
Buried on a sunless summer day;
It haunts my every waking dream
As you sink slowly
from my memory
Into the deepest parts of my psyche.
I wish I could
Release these magic numbers
And watch them
Play tricks on you
The way the idea of you
Plays tricks on me.

This is pretty good. I like how it ends with a different thought than what it begins with.
