The story behind the poem
Ever met and fallen in love with
someone you are certain would not love you back? Please say yes, so
I don't feel like such a fool.
He was the guy every girl wanted to date. I was among the least
noticed of all those girls...I knew he was out of my league, so I
didn't take my affection for him seriously. We graduated from
college and went our separate ways until 4 years later, when we met
again in New York. What happened in that magical city was everything
I had ever dreamed of, but it lasted only as long as my presence
there. I left the city having fallen in love with him all over
again. He stayed behind probably completely oblivious of my
feelings. And we haven't talked since.
I am a bodacious woman. I'm strong willed and I would let a man know
I love him if I do. But in this case I feel like my lips are sewn
up. I just can't. It's not because I don't have the courage to, it's
because I just know with more certainty than ever that we could
never be together. He's from a different world, and I simply would
never fit in. I love him silently, and if he knows, he is doing a
very good job at ignoring me.
I ache to love him. I have so much to give, and it breaks my heart
that I can't be the one to make him happy.
