Why did I Love You (August contest "reality" )

There, I felt the essence of our true love,
feelings akin to super glues holdings.
Drifting thoughts, flowing across a table,
seeking the perfection, held in each other.

The eyes holding, shining truth, then loving,
each moment etched in gold, entwining souls.
Where have you come from? I thought, seeking more.
A lifetime of dreams rendered to my needs.

Nothing existed beyond this one moment,
held above morality and revered.
I was just a being, and there you were,
nothing was good enough to describe you.

Now a lifetime has passed by my window,
there you are, across that table once more.
A memory beautifully etched in my mind.

Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Review Request (Direction): 
What did you think of the rhythm or pattern or pacing?
How does this theme appeal to you?
Is the internal logic consistent?
Last few words: 
An old jotting for a love that stays with me always ..
Editing stage:

Enjoyed the poem but you need to make up your mind which poem to enter in the contest. The judge has a hard enough time deciding when only one per member is entered lol....stan

Nice, but I have a suggestion. I flowed with the central idea and emotions to some extent but at a time was really distracted by the somewhat inconsistent punctuations. In as much as poetry can be flexible in nature, consistency in punctuations especially in this case the commas, will do more justice to the idea.
All the same, good job. It's never easy to articulate the idea and write down these things.

~We get better through practice ~

Thank you for you visit and advise, I am very bad at punctuation as you noticed.
These pieces are written within about 20 minutes or so, and streamed ASAP, so the commas and full stops are forgotten as with most of my works.
I have edited this piece to see if it is better, thanks again,
Yours Ian ..
