My love for you burns your name forever into my soul
Staining my unrighteous love for you all over my forlorn heart.
Forever am I yours, but you will never be mine.
So all I’m left with is your brand eternally etched upon my heart.
Forever yours,
Though you will never know.
My love for thee overwhelms my soul, though my mind knows this devotion is futile.
When I see thee meandering, my spirit becomes dejected for I know my desire will never come to fruition,
But the sweet sensation of your passive voice
Curdles the blood along my spine every time you speak to me, I become powerless hopelessly entranced by my obsession for you.
As if you are a drug my body chronically craves.
Forever yours,
As you will never be mine,
And forever will my soul be plagued to walk along the endless earth
Pacing amongst the faceless shadows,
For I have found love, once but it will never be obtained.
So I lay asleep at night, pursuing thee in my dreams
Yearning for your touch even if it illusionary.
Dreaming a dream I wish I’d never wake,
But as peaceful darkness fades to abrasive day
Our love will be erased,
Thus I pray you will haunt me in my dreams for all of eternity,
So at the very least I may momentarily have you if only within the confines of my subconscious.
For my love for you kindles an endless internal fire,
Whose flame ignites for all of perpetuity.
No one will ever know the way I feel
And neither will you,
Since my heart is forever stuck in limbo
Incapable to have you but unable to forget thee.
Forever yours,
Though my external actions appear otherwise.
The way I treat you contradicts the way I feel,
But since my heart will never get what it desires
I treat you more coldly then an icy December storm
And when you’re not looking , I scorn your noticeable imperfections
And the scars that riddle your body,
But as I tread into my secret haven
I idolize each and every nuance of thee.
That you will haunt my dreams tonight.

Vivid use of imagery. It conveys a sense of pain that feels very real.
