Only You: A Poem


I probably shouldn't think of you as much as I do,

But thinking leads to feeling; I like the way I feel about you,

Your smile is contagious though I don't see it very often,

It's pointless to fly on high hopes; I should nail them in a coffin,

This unrequited love will shred my heart to painful parts,

Cupid's arrows are menacing, like fiery, poisonous darts,

The only time you think of me is when you're bored or a little curious,

You ask me questions and my feeble mind just makes me furious,

I guess we'll always be friends, if you count conversations online,

But friendship seems more than brutal to a lonely heart like mine.
