One Sided Love - Poem by zainab zaheen

why does every thing have to be one sided
is it me that looks at things this way..
why is it that i put in all the effort.
why cant you meet me half way..
why does everything have to be your way..
this feeling makes me want to scream.
but i still love you regardless but you will never know.
ill always be there in your darkest hour.
but you refuse to see..
why is this love so one sided.
why cant you see me..

    Love becomes or is sometimes one sided so it is unrequited.Otherwise dictionaries will not be priced for words.And cries and tears from eyes will be banished.Forget this one-sidedness mess.Life is a train.There will be stations where u will get passengers who are with u until ur last stop.

    I can totally relate to this poem. People who are ignorant to the other half of love cam only feel half of the amazing emotion associated with it. Especially when their ignorant to the other people's feelings as well! You accurately write out what way too many people are blind to. Write on my friend (: (Report)Reply
