Unrequited Love

I am the victim of an unrequited love. The love I feel cannot be shared or returned. I want him to see the flowers in my eyes and hear the songs in my hands. I want to be looked at and adored the way he used to look at and adore me. I don’t want this, I scream it. I feel it, the pain is raw and trapped like a wild animal running rampage in my veins. My skin is weeping and my words are failing but I know one thing to be very true. What we had was real, it was free and wonderful. And when I grow older I will show my children all the keepsakes I have kept and I will show them the journey of love and passion that was was my first love. 

I may be a victim of unrequited love and I may now be alone in this but heaven knows, I have made it this far. I will go on. 


"I can’t make you love me when you don’t. You can’t make your heart feel something that it won’t".

Excuse me, we’re through. My darling, even though this kills me I do understand. And even though I love you still, please let me bleed, I know you will.

I am so completely and utterly fucked it’s almost unbelievable.

I Feel Happy and Proud For Me

I came home and laid the table. I laid the table for two people with some flowers in the middle. I proceeded to cook leek, bacon and chicken pie with baked chocolate mousse for pudding. I made it, I didn’t think I would but I did because I promised him I would. I cooked and I waited. Ticking past 6;30pm I knew he wasn’t coming home any time soon. I’m still sitting here at the table and I’m not even disappointed. I expected this and I can’t be surprised. 

It’s true what they say, never expect anything from anyone so you don’t end up disappointed. I don’t need someone to come home and eat my food just so I can feel proud of making it. I feel happy and proud for me. I can meet my own needs.
