The aching crush of unrequited love
Hangs heavy on the spring air.
The rejection of self
Brakes the inert soul.
The shelf fills with the unwanted,
As the blessed make babes
Under cover of united duvets.
Tears of desolation drop,
From red ringed swollen eyes,
Onto pale faced cheeks of despair.
As cupid's arrows withdraw,
Broken hearts bleed unseen red.
