My Desire Unacquired. - Poem by Lisa Kramer

You are my only wish, want, and desire,
Something that I will never acquire,
You just want me to be your friend,
Hard for me to accept and comprehend.

The more I love the more I'm pushed away,
I feel so empty, so alone, so betrayed,
I fake a smile but I'm really hurting inside,
Broke my heart and kept your pride.

I wear a mask every single day,
To hide my sorrow and skies of gray,
All the tears held back by a smile,
Falling apart but acting agile.

Heartbeat to heartbeat I feel the pain,
I gave it all with nothing to gain,
But no longer shall I hurt,
All of it I will now avert.
