Below is a poem I wrote for a random school contest. The theme of the poem is unrequited love. I found it when I was digging for some lost papers. Now when I read it, I find it a lil corny. Thought I'l post it anyways. It goes like this....
It Kills me to think
You bring out the best in me
Every time I’m with you
I fall in love with myself.
Because I say to you
What I’ve never said before
I do for you
What I’ve never done before.
But it kills me to think that ‘m not to you, wot you are to me.
I remember every glance we exchanged
Every word we spoke, every moment we spend in silence.
But in your memories I may not even exist.
And it kills me to think that for you, ‘m just another woman
But your the standard by which I judge every man.
Every time u looked into my eyes and spoke nothing
I thought I read your silence right.
Every time I fought with you just to talk to you
I thought you could read my mind.
Every time I buried my dreams under yours
I thought you would know why.
And it kills me to think that you couldn’t see in my eyes
Wot I so wanted to say with my lips.
You met many women and moved on with life.
I met many men, but in everyman I met
I kept looking for YOU.
Whats between us can be created with none
Because all the magic comes to life, only when I’m with you.
Though unseen, I can deeply feel the heat
And with all my heart, I know you are irreplaceable.
And it kills me to think I can never feel the same feel again.
