What does it mean to be haunted?

Closing my eyes I can see the first time I saw you. I open and close them again and I see the last time I saw her. I hear a love song on the radio, especially a Beatles one, and I hear her voice in the lyrics. I can see your smiles and your tears. I hear you laughter and you sarcastic remarks aimed at me. Not a day goes by that you don’t drift into my thoughts, even if just for a second. I care for you, worry about you, and want the best for you.

I know you don’t feel the same, and I’m a realist so I know the odds of things changing are pretty low. So all I can do is sit from afar and be haunted by you.
