Unrequited Love - Poem by Christine K. Trease

Apron undone
Weeping begun
Once keeping a heart was sincere
Hands clasp a face
Wrought with disgrace
From a love bound to disappear

Precious and free
The final decree
Resolving to harbor alone
Their love couldn't last
Memories of the past
Or a heart that she never did own

    I agree with Graham. A wonderful economy of words, and every one of them hits the target. (Report) Reply
