Guilt

He compels a smile to alleviate me
but his eyes are merely 
green tinted windows
into his anxious soul.

I see right through him.
Remorse twists my stomach.
I burn him with an accidental fire
that the Atlantic Ocean cannot tame.¬¬¬
I'm a pyromaniac
despite my will.

There is nothing I can do 
to stop the burns thickening on his heart.
Should I hurt him with my evanescence
or with my infinite, unspoken lies?

The prospect of his misery
torments me.
I care.
Why can’t I love?

He knows he is my silver medal,
that I don’t feel 
the felicity I claim to.
But what can you do when you love another?
Another who does not love you.

    A warm reminder of years past.... the love triangle is as old as man itself i shouldnt wonder... a lovely write which is so full of diverse descriptions which are so good and honest....like picking a good pair of shoes, they need to be the ones you want most....tyvm

    Thank you for the warm welcome :) I'm not a great poet, I'm just writing some stuff for my English A level course work, and if anyone has any criticisms, I will take them with pleasure, it would be very helpful! Owen, what you said, I realise now that it's true, I just wish I could see it earlier. :)

    Hi Kamila we should never settle for second best or those who love us but we cannot return that love better we release them unharmed for someone who can love them, welcome to the soup I like this dilemma of a write, all the best Owen
