Unrequited love

I had missed some of the bloggers I had followed…

Decided it was time to reconnect…

Kellie Elmore’s Blog has been a means for me to try new avenues with her writing prompts…

Thanks Kellie…

She has listed 29 prompts for the month of February…

The 11 th day is where I picked up… and it was titled “Unrequited Love…

Simple Definition of unrequited:

not shared or returned by someone else

 

“Unrequited Love”   by: Marilyn Griffin

I looked his way…

with lowered eyes…

Hoping he would stay…

Feeling heart rate rise…

 

I had loved him…

from a distance far…

Loving never dim…

wishing on distant star…

 

Sometimes I felt his stare…

but, not as one he loved…

or would even care…

to make his beloved…

 

My mind would race…

to thoughts untold…

His lips I would trace…

Embraced with his hold…

 

But, to no avail…

my love was dimmed…

Love thoughts were pale…

Eyes with tears brimmed…

 

Not to be…

Unrequited love…

I set him free…

as a wistful dove…
