Unrequited

From the ether, she emerges, with her beauty, clean and light,

Tormenting you, as though there is no cost.

You know she doesn’t love you, yet you feel some day she might.

The world looks on and knows that you are lost.

From her tower, she looks down on you and sees you as you are,

Not a flicker of desire will reach her eyes.

You fail to see that you will always worship from afar.

The world looks on and knows you’re wrapped in lies.

You talk as though you’re equals, but she’s miles ahead of you

She knows that she can keep you on a rope.

You think her flirting means something, as fools will often do.

The world looks on and knows there is no hope.

From the ether she emerges and you see that she’s sublime,

Every atom of your reason is now gone.

You feel as though she wants you up beside her for all time.

The world looks on and knows you’re not the one.
