Excellent poetry, the lamentation of a scorned lover, scorned for a career not another woman, the cruelest blow of all. The pleading of a lover for a bit of attention, and being completely overlooked. Amelie Opie was an excellent poetess.

Thank you for sharing this awesome write - it's inspired me to add my own ending to the story: And aught of life I dare to define as envy’s suffocating fumes, conspiracy that’s crossed the line to pave the path to many tombs… But I am fine and choose to be to breathe in the air of the truth… To love and live means to be free and swap weary lines for eternal youth…

................love should never be kept secret....cause the one you love may have the same feelings for you....if kept secret and love was never embraced....then it would be a tragedy...
