w-UNREQUITED

1 2U N R E Q U I T E D I need to know what it was, that made me love you so. What was it please? I have to know. I wanted your arms around me, around me all the time. I was yours forever. (I thought that you were mine). But you were a drifter it seems. Now youve broken all my dreams. From the beginning of loves night, until ends morning light nestles down between us, through my dazed half-sleep, I think, Could I ever ask for more, loving you as I do? And then you said Come fly with me, In that sweet, soft song you once wrote. And I did, I wanted to, wanted to fly with you, until the end of time. So, fly we did, to far-off places, seeing unfamiliar faces, seeing each other for the very first time, each and every time we looked. Nothing bothered us much then. And I sure didnt want it to end, (the way that it does in this song). But love doesnt ever work out, when two different people cant seem to be one. Now theres just a face in the mirror that I can see from where Im alone on the bed, while Im trying to remember that love song you wrote that still sends me flying with you in my head.

Description


Warning: this poem does not rhyme! Its a love song of sorts. Comprised of several pieces I wrote whenever I had a heartache of some sort, starting when I was about 16 years old and finished about 35 years later. We do tend to do some of our best work when we are broken-hearted, don't you find? Suffering, if nothing else, can be a great inspiration.
Thankfully it is in the past and I have lived in love requited for nearly 25 years.

You know...I TOTALLY agree w/ yu about your poem... and on what you are saying here about love, suffering, etc..etc..I may not have any formal training myself, on writing/poetry/etc...I'm with you on the fact of suffering being an inspirat.

I decided to call it a song because it doesn't follow any one rule of poetry. It's mostly Free Verse but then it slips into iambic tetrameter and so on. There is even some rhyme in there. The important component is rhythm (or meter).

Maybe the philosophy of some is "Non curo. Si metrum non habet, non est poema," which is Latin for...I don't care. If it doesn't rhyme it isn't a poem. Whatever happened to love of iambic pentameter? *sigh*

Didn't even notice...I just hope some will get some enjoyment from it. Or at least some will empathize. This is actually an award-winning poem already, so remember what I always told you, "Jealousy is the hallmark of the mediocre."
