My heart aches for you, and you fail to see it.
But, how can you be expected to?
I have not told you.

Yet, I have told you, several times.
Hundreds of times.
Thousands of times.
I have spoken with my eyes,
my actions,
my indirect words.
I have even expressed to you
my emotional agony.

You still do not fully understand.

How can you not?
I have tried to say it in every possible way I can,
but I cannot seem to utter those three special yet cursed words.

I love you.

I think you know I do, though.
You may grasp this idea yet.
However, you do not know their extent.
You cannot know.
I and only I am in my head,
thinking my thoughts.
You cannot comprehend this.

Every day,
every night,
to sundown,
and every second otherwise,
you are on my mind.
But even that is an understatement.

I long for you.
For your touch,
your words,
your comfort,
your presence.
And every day,
every night,
to sundown,
and every second otherwise,
these things belong to her.
I see this.
I know this.
But my heart cannot fathom this,
the fact that you will never be bound to me
in any way.
I realize this,
yet I am forced to keep this on,
not giving up,
not giving in to the obvious which I full know.

You will never love me,
and yet,
my heart aches for you.

Sounds like shes someone you don't really like. Are you jealous of his gf?

No idea. Haven't talked to him since I discovered how bad of a person he actually is. Love is blind, don't forget it.

well then, what can i say, its good that things never got to how you wanted thm to be, cuz then you would have been inlove with a bad person. and its good that you arent jelous of that girl anymore. i would have been awful if you knew her, like if she was youre best friend or something, and he loved her. thats what happened to me
