Unrequited

may26brevity

I can’t compete

With wealth own,

I must retreat,

Live life alone.

 

He’s with you,

I am not.

Hope fell through,

Another dream shot.

 

Won’t hold hands,

Share a heart.

Won’t make plans,

Grow old apart.

 

Reached the end,

Wish for more.

Hard to pretend,

I still adore.

 

Must not lament

Over my scar;

Must be content,

Love from afar.
