Unreciprocated (poem)

or even touched,

though i imagined

what it might be

like as your lover,

you seemed both

attracted and repelled,

the nuances of our

desires, i said i

loved you, but

all i got was

    My lesson there was to set aside those situations and find somebody who truly appreciates you for who and what you are. 🙂
