Unrequited Love

I lie awake so I will not dream
Of a fair beauty who haunts me night and day
Relentlessly in pursuit of a love so precious

It is not understood
It cannot be

True love like this is painful to the point of becoming numb
Numb as in not seeing or feeling or hearing anything at all

Except

Our fair love, so unrequited and undeniably real
A love so cruel and harsh
That it becomes all the more enticing

Love of the unrequited kind
A love like no other...
