Heartache 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.
