Unrequited by Sheila Pierson


I became one with you and you with me

I will never again seek this kind of torment

You pressed your lips against mine and I wept

For the knowledge of my lost innocence.       

I am standing on a brittle ledge of grief,

Both afraid and wanting to fall;

I knew better than to let myself go to you

And though my heart thirsts to survive

Your heart has long since said goodbye;

I am but a shadow of a human being,

Hoping only to exist in your mind.
