All Poetry

Unrequited.

When a smile,
portrayed as guise of fire,
rusts as your presence departs…

When a caress,
lingered with twilight glow,
is but a shadow trailing
scarlet threads…

When a love, unreturned,
plays master calloused
to a fading hope…

Set a seal upon shallow heart,
you whom my soul desires,
and let me be released.

  1. OH NO, the link is broken or the page is missing. Is that Elizabeth Barrett Browning? We didn’t get to read to the end.

  2. Of course, this is beautiful. But because I can relate so deeply, it makes me sad too. You are always awesome ! Thanks for sharing even the hard ones. :-p
