"The greatest ironies of life: having the right person at the wrong time, having the wrong person when the time is right, and finding out that you love someone after that person walks out of your sight ...." -V. Para

I do truly love you
And this love remains throughout
The mutual relief
Of our overdue fallout

We're drowning in requited love
I know that you know it's true
But if you try to save us
I just might end up hurting you

We say we love each other everyday
A routine that I wish I could quit
Returning the bland words out of courtesy
Though neither of us wants to hear it

I feel like we have become bitter
Looking critically at all we gave
You just want to be my sturdy rock
I just don't want to be yours to save

You're my indecisive buoy
Leaving me a sinking feeling
Effort has long since died away
A partnership with no healing

Agitating me with caustic love
A heartfelt notion of forever
The torturous truth reveals to be
We seem destined to be together

I refuse to act depressed
And pretend that I have tried
You're the sweetest man I've ever met
And I'm thrilled to tell you...
