Unrequited Love

by Milly Hayward   Jan 29, 2018


Gentle dove with crystal breath
with plumes that touch my heart
you bring a message of my death
when you say we'll be apart

I will not leave, here I must stay
for my heart remains with you
darling, love will find a way
if you could believe it too
---
Dove looked down with sorrow
and shook her head once more
there can be no tomorrow
for with me, you cannot soar

You are a cat, I am your lunch
what future could we share
I hear you, but I have a hunch
you'd eat me, without a care

    Very funny, Milly.
    Like the other comments, the punch line was unexpected, which is how comedy writes should be. I like humour, you know that and I appreciated this wonderfully paced write.

    Thank you x
