"Never let the future disturb you. You will meet it, if you have to, with the same weapons of reason which today arm you against the present." --Marcus Aurelius

I see you often in this town we share
in which our paths wander and never ever cross
your posture and height gently
like a teacher overseeing everything you do with a great green joy
your name up on a wall but that’s not all
I’ve got yourtown syndrome
and every face I see
I a face that might have seen yours
I’m reaching for you-
do you feel me?

I feel you with this poem. I'm assuming this deals with someone well known in your town, or someone really popular. You're infatuated with him or her. But this person doesn't notice you—or so you think. Sad poem. Yet relatable in every way.
