What is love, without loving the right person but when the right person is being loved by someone else, what will you do?


From the years of our youth


We shared the same laughs


And now my ego yens for more


Waiting to kiss those soft lips


That ones gave a friendly advice


As the days scroll by


My love for you are well written


Engraving every thoughts of mine


Captured by your beauty


In diary I express-


A love far greater than Romeo’s


Pouring my heart feelings


As the pages flip


In envy, I stir at your beauty


Counting each steps


Jotting the very sound made by your walks


For in my world, I made you a goddess


And now I stand


Watching you say, “I do”, to a stranger


Pulling the plug that kept me living; ___You.

Oh yes, this is very very fine poetry.

I especially loved these two verses,


In diary I express-

A love far greater than Romeo’s

The pun on "In diary" is very keen!

Wonderful!

No harder and no greater romantic love can you gift to another heart, and no greater personal longing can cause you as much pain. Endure it. Love her anyway. All that matters is that YOU know the depth of your love. It will sustain you. A truly grand and noble write, a wonderful sentiment!
