Blind - Poem by shamon mackey

How do I end up in this situation all the time
Lusting after a man that could never be mine
Though he talks with words so kind
My true feelings to him are blind
The man that you know would never change
Because his love for many women will remain the same
So why do I dream of carrying his name
He is everything I don’t need
yet for him my love bleeds
Without him I would feel lost
But I should sacrifice my heart at what cost
Although this is something I don’t want to believe…
He could never be the right man for me
