Unrequited Love

Written by: Diana-Marie Bombardieri

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
