Unrequited Love

My love for you is an addiction, my devotion my noose
clinging to delusion makes me struggle for breath
to fill my aching lungs, I must cut my desire loose

Outwardly you love me, but it’s what’s inside that bears weight
my shameless attempts to woo you, stain a barren portrait 
my love for you is an addiction, my devotion my noose

I hunger for a love that is undeniably unrequited
suffocated by the harsh reality, shadows consume me 
to fill my aching lungs, I must cut my desire loose
my love for you is an addiction, my devotion my noose

    I have only felt this a few times in life ...Love is painful at times and at my old age I have found that I create my own lines are so magical and I especially like the barren portrait and the gentle repetition...the tempo is also relaxing...Happy that this won, Dianna Marie. It is such a classy write! Have a blessed Easter weekend! :) Gwendolen

    Sometimes I wonder about this thing called can bend us so many ways and yes, it can be an addiction of the worst kind...very well written.
