Unrequited - Poem by Billy Loving

Words left unspoken
No requite, not even a token
Staring at the ceiling
While my mind is reeling
A heart slowly breaking
Feeling so forsaken
Loneliness abounds
Emptiness confounds
Past, so distant it seems
Future, a vision in my dreams
Alone again
On no one to depend
Feeling so down
In my sorrow, I might drown
My Creator, I trust
No feeling of disgust
My way he will guide
As my despair begins to subside
His love is enough
Sometimes it's so tuff
Faith my ever present light
In his words, I delight
Darkness subsides
Warmth filling my insides
A hope for a better life
Maybe even a wife
My creator, my crutch
As to happiness I clutch
A lightening of the load
As I continue down life's winding road

    Yes, so sad. Who said you'll get a wife in the next. System. Be careful you may just miss the boat. Read my kaiku
