"Explored the world to return to where my soul begun."

I waited on your arrival
I called on you ages ago
Did you get my emails?
My letters?
My emails?
I even sent you a gift once or twice before
A green umbrella
Green's your favorite color
And I know it rains a bunch in Seattle
But you know it wouldn't hurt for you to send me and email
A letter or two
A call if you didn't want to walk to the post office
They all said you didn't care
That I should just forget about you
But see, how could I give you up love?
You're too good to be true and too true to be fabricated
Sometimes I keep an ear to the door
I listen for your footsteps
I just know that one day you'll knock on my door
You'll say, "let's go"
And we'll do just that
We'll go
And you'll take me from here
Far away
Far Far away love

The author's comments:
This piece was inspired by my first high school crush. I can remember my longing for this crush. The unwillingness to give up this crush. Even after it was clear that my love was unrequited, I held on. I hoped that one day his mind would change, and that my love would be returned. I hope that from this poem, others can understand that they are not alone in this struggle, to let go, and move on.
