“Unrequited” – A Poem

And oh, how my heart burned for you.

The hottest flames could not compare.

Even the sun,

in all its radiance

was like a single sputtering candle.

But my vulnerable heart was blinded

by an intense, yet innocent desire.

To want,

and be wanted in return.

I pleaded for my heart’s sake,

crying out to you.

Am I not enough?

Is my love not sufficient?

But your ears and heart

were closed to my plea.

You turned away from my outstretched arms

without as much as a backwards glance.

You left me broken

with a love unrequited.

The fires of my soul burned out painfully slow,

leaving nothing but cold, dead ashes.
