the Unrequited Love

Unrequited Love

by: Brittany Fehr

I embellish my body, but inside I'm breaking

this ephemeral love, only keeps my heart aching

your intense effrontery only hurts my feelings

I thought you were my counterpart but our two hearts are bleeding

make me quiet, diminish me of my strength

demur my love and watch my hands shake

i try to be furtive and not reveal to much

but my complaisant heart just wasn't strong enough

I consign this broken, burned, tattered, and beaten heart over to you

it's so restive, yet still beating, maybe you'll figure out what to do.
