here you are, indelible in my heart. 
You nestle there, comfortable, sometimes 
 Nudging my consciousness if you 
Temporarily fade from view. 

There you are, a stain that cannot be removed. 
Covered sometimes with a cloak of concealment 
But always jostling for attention, 
Poking, prodding my awareness. 

There you are, permanently marked. 
Written in my history, always a mystery 
That can never be solved, yet mysterious 
No more in your familiar familiarity. 

I cannot remove you from the blueprint of my life. 
You are penned there enduringly, alluringly 
Tempting, pulling on my fortitude: undaunted 
Undeterred, there you are - eternally.
