longing

Longing

Longing

is my drug

And I marvel at your fear

of me

And my need to look pretty

for your ex-girlfriend 

I will always doubt

your feelings for me

Perhaps it’s my insecurities

Or perhaps it is only

to forever keep

my longing.

Love unrequited

Desire can be

torture

a slow drip of 

cardiac decay

Love left unrequited

will haunt us

until our last breath

bury us beneath

mounds of regret

And yet still,

I wonder

What would life be like

without something

to always long for?
