Poem: This way to Love

guy alone lines wall

I just took it the wrong way
I assumed that / misunderstood the distinction
between unfulfilled love and unrequited love
I internalized it as rejection
that ultimately yet again
I was unloved,
Unlovable.
But it was
Fate,
Destiny
and Life that was to blame. There were too many forces
keeping us apart.

Poem: Lonesome

girl lying in bed

The greatest tragedy
that lay in her heart
was that the one she loved
The First One,
the One
or so she thought…

Well he was the one
who attempted to enter her
uninvited.

It tore her
left her broken
in two.

So now she remains
alone
solo
