- (of a feeling, especially love) not returned or rewarded.
Here’s a peek from my next book--Unrequited.
It didn’t matter
how pitiful my state
I always accepted your meager crumbs
The mirror showed no small resemblance
of what I’d become
I moved to your strings
and was held firmly under your thumb
Like a cheap tart,
for your scraps I preened
when I should have been treated like a queen
I was an addict
and you were my drug
your arrogant, self-righteous looks always so smug
Those few stolen moments…….
We have all felt the burn of love unrequited, someone we have loved that didn’t return the same feeling,
a friend we gave more of ourselves to that didn’t appreciate all we shared and gave,
those that took advantage, and even derived pleasure from your pain, there are a thousand ways to
feel the burn from someone not sharing feelings or spurning our affections, this next book will capture
those feelings of the painful sting of love unrequited.
