Unrequited love;
The meaning
Of this particular
String of words
Is a love that is not
Shared

Unrequited love;
The meaning
Of this lethal
Injection of words
Officially is
A love that
Is not returned
Or rewarded

Unrequited love;
This phrase
Dipped in pain
And laced with poison
Does not stand
Alone

Unrequited love;
Followed by
“Almost”
And
“So close”

Unrequited love:
Stands between
So many
Lacerated collections
Of atoms

Unrequited love;
Between
One in love
And one in
Lust

Unrequited love;
Between
One in love
And one in
Numbness


Unrequited love:
Between
Two lips
Between
Two torsos

Unrequited love;
Between
A mind,
A set of eyes,
And a body

Unrequited love;
It’s not
Thought of
Anywhere besides
Between two
Breathing
Thinking
Living
People

Unrequited love;
But you tell
That to the
Mirror that has
Seen too much

Unrequited love;
Has seen
Fingernails dug
Into flesh
To write a
Love letter
That the flesh
Will deny
And the mind
Won’t stop thinking
About

Unrequited love;
You tell that to
My body
Who desperately
Wants me to love
It back
