I Truly Love You But … - Poem by Masked lady

Yes, I love you, I truly love you,
I love you more than I have ever loved a man,
Let me just love you in my own way
In my own style, without attachment,
Without any commitment, just plainly I love you.

I love you more than my heart can ever love,
But don’t expect me to show how much I love you
For that I will never do, nor will it ever happen.
Because that’s the way I want to love you,

Stop waiting for me I ask of you,
You already have waited for 2 years
and willing to wait for more you say
Until I am free, but no, don’t do that
For I may not be there for you.

You are a free man, go find another life,
Find another love and stop waiting for me;
Though I truly love you, I will never be yours,
I will just love you with all my heart and soul
watching over you from a distance
Because that’s how I want it to be,
That’s my way, that’s my style.

    Though I truly love you, I will never be yours,
    I will just love you with all my heart and soul
    I am sorry if I can never reciprocate with your love
    Because that’s how I want it to be, ..............................utterly passionate crooning of love
    yet reflexes by the shadow on the rune of dream contradicting of course bestirs to etch on the frills of own desire and style, wonderful write,10+++, thanks for sharing

    what a pity... bravery nowadays is women`s prerogative... while some men act much like cowards... to provoke a parody of true love with no able to answer for their silly deeds. of course im talking not abt the hero of ur poem, his love seems the same faithful with urs.10 (Report) Reply
