Unrequited Love


The fear of rejection invaded my being,
As much as I want to approach you, I can’t help thinking.
Would you like me or would you avoid me?
These thoughts that I keep on bringing.

Should I continue to love or not?
Should I wait or give up?
Because I have been through pain and grief a lot,
All the pain that I felt seems to be enough.

I tried to be happy, but I am sad,
I tried to fake a smile, but I want to frown.
Deep inside this heart I always feel bad,
There’s no denying, it makes me hopelessly mad.

Why can’t you see I’m always here?
Why can’t you feel the way I really feel?
I cry out your name, can’t you really hear?
Is there a way for your heart that I could steal?

What breaks me the most is your affection towards others,
Silently hoping that I can talk to you like nothing matters.
Did you know boy? These emotions keep on hurting me,
For the fact that I know, I’ll be loving you one-sidedly.
