A variation on love at first sight

There’s a romance with “love at first sight,” but I’d like to toss a coin into the fountain for each lover I could become strangers with again, and I wouldn’t be ugly to them, and they’d be looking at me, because I’d be someone they hadn’t met yet, and they’d be wondering what it’d be like to know someone like me, and after hours of thinking about it, we would kiss, then leave to a place where we haven’t ever said things to each other we can’t unsay or done things we can’t undo, and we’d only say new things, and do new things in this new place, which would replace the old things, and it’d feel like two people falling in love after years of being alone, and it’d feel like happily ever after all over again.
