Painful Love

My feelings are so strong
Yet I've always done something wrong
I've fallen in love once again
Yet forbidden from ever touching her skin

There's no longer a point in moving on
The lyrics will change but it'll still be the same song
Another one sided mirror of emotions
And no way to put love in motion

I believe there's other fish in the sea
Great and beautiful mermaids of the deep
Yet, my rod must be broken
So many years and yet to reel one in

Love for me is a virus and i have no immunity
It has me sitting and hoping for opportunities
The chance to be that perfect one
And until then i sit here, fishing under a burning sun

    Your love will come in, sometimes we have to stop looking for it to come, ask the universe, your rod isn't broken your mermaid she swims & in time you will be reeling her inn, great beautiful write William :)
