Though my love for you is far from gone, Our romantic unity is over. I've been hurt countless times, But I can't release my daydreams of you The way you laugh As a breeze through my hair ...refreshing A glimpse of our smile still brightens my day... Though, now, that smile is warranted by another Someone obviously more worthy than I. I still hear your voice, infrequently bringing my joy. But, at comprehension, I am sickened by your words. We must only be friends!? I must listen to the words of your lips, But never kiss them? Stare in the awe at the satin of your skin, But never caress? How could you be so cruely loving? Allowing me to love you and denying me simultaneously. Forbidding me to swim, When, in love, I am so deep. You're trying hard to kill my soul ...and you're so close to succeeding.
