Love knows no bounds
......as long as it does not ask too much
Love envelops - surrounds
.......as long as it requires no fuss.
Love offers unending support
.......as long as it is at his request
Love laughs, smiles, cavorts
.......as long as it is what he suggests.
One-sided it would appear..
how did I not see?
How could my eyes, heart, mind be so unclear?
He fooled no one but me.
Pain so deep,
Tearing me apart..
Can't eat, think, sleep
Will it always be 'dark'?
"That which does not kill us
Makes us strong"
Unspoken, unsaid: withered trust,
Their motto, their saying- all wrong!
Empty, hollow, shattered I be
Numb, bleak, sad and gray,
Wishing for darkness to take me
Never again this pain, I pray.
