Alone

Alone once again
In the darkness I cry
My life’s been a waste
If without her I die

Her heart is full of passion
Her soul, full of care
Qualities like these
In one person, so rare

Almost a year has passed
The attraction has grown strong
To not let her know
My feelings would be wrong

One cold summer night
I braved the chance
This might be the moment
My heart can now dance

Together that night
In such a warm embrace
My life now feels fulfilled
Everything in place

“Can’t we just be friends?”
She announced the rule
These are just simple words
And yet they feel so cruel

To be so close to my love
And now to be so far
Cuts through the heart
An emotional scar

“Please reconsider”,
Daily, I plead
To be loved by her
Is my only real need

The rejection is hard
Like living in sin
Should I just give up the chase
Simply give in?

Alone once again
In the darkness I cry
My life’s been a waste
If without her I die

Alone
