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.
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.
