Unrequited Love

I haven’t written a new poem in awhile, but I’ve been doing a series of writing prompts that called for one, so here it is! Unrequited love was the theme.

Should have all worked out, but it didn’t. She should be here now, but she isn’t. There’s your trouble, there’s your trouble. ~~ The Dixie Chicks

Unrequited love. Is there anything worse?

 

Pain and frustration

Anguish and loss

All just tokens of a battle

Brilliantly fought.

 

Like daggers that cut

Through your soul

You pour out your heart

For love you can’t hold.

 

Fighting for him

But he doesn’t care

He doesn’t see you

His heart he won’t share.

 

Living in darkness

Crying in pain

Shattering your heart

There’s nothing to gain.

 

 

Abandoned, deserted,

betrayed

Alone in the darkness

You prayed.

 

Empty, desolate, alone

Shutting emotion down

Is your only hope

By love you are bound.

 

Constricting, restricting,

Suffocating you now

You would break free and run

if you only knew how.

 

Silently, slowly,

Dying inside

In agony you suffer

Too much to abide.

 

Wondering why

did you fall

Loving in vain

Is not love at all
