A Political Romance

Love, when I met you, I had no reason to smile anymore

Your eyes turned my visage vibrant and my desire into an outpour.

And yet my heart felt heavy and sore -

Because you could never love me.


Like an angel you were,

Like a glowing star,

Yet you were so far.

Yet I begged for us to be together.

But I knew we never would -

Because you could never love me.


Baby, how I wished for you call out my name!

It was all so bizarre ....

All I knew was infatuation for you.

And I felt my intuition was so true.

I fantasized you'd take me away, make me fly!

I wanted you to take the chance, let your pride die.

For you to say you loved me,

I thought I'd never know angst again.

But I knew my passion would never be set free.

Because you could never love me.
