You have been clocked

Served in the U.S. Army, attended and graduated from The University of Texas-Arlington with a bachelors in psychology and minor in sociology

I have waited for you with undying devotion,
my love for you was as vast as the ocean.
...
I would have walked to the ends of the earth to see your face,
I would have crawled through hell just to feel your embrace.

I have written eloquent prose in honor of your beauty,
I have carried my feelings for you as a privileged duty.

Through actions I have shown that I cared for no one but you.
I carried my emotions on my sleeve for all to view.

As reward for my effort, what prize did I gain?
I received your indifference, your silence, your disdain.

I remembered the times that were important to thee,
but you couldn’t find the time to remember me.

I wish I could be cavalier, I wish I were more guarded.
So that I could leave you in my wake instead of
being brokenhearted.

But my soul has been pierced, and my devotion has seeped away.
Maybe I will manage to live and love another day.

Just wanted you to know that I see where we stand,
And that I will remember this day like a scar left by
hot brand.

Dorogaya moya, you have been clocked…

      Hello Nikki! I know you can relate, because I have read your poetry. But find it difficult to understand why because I know you. But the loss is theirs; thank you for the comment and visit.

      Thank Swalia for the comment. Yes, unrequited love kills, and loving without expectations is easier said than done. Thank you again for the comment.

      Gypsy, thank you! I appreciate the comment and visit.

      beautifully expressed the heartbreak...it hurts when love is not reciprocated. probably that's why they tell us to love without expectations!
