tortured by the idea of you

i am tortured by the idea of you
  so perfect and impossible

you are, in a way, my negative
   filling all my empty spaces,
so that when we combine,
   only light remains

yet it is your shadow that haunts me
  in the grace of a stranger’s smile
  the delicate curve of the moon
  the simple beauty of love unrequited

how can i stand amidst all of this
  without tears and the promise of tears
betrayed by hollywood
captured by the truth i most fear

so like Parzival i must find
  the source of this truth
so that by setting you free
   i save myself
