It's not you, it's me

by Kitty Cat Lady   Feb 13, 2018


I really am so sorry
How perfect it would be
If I felt the same about you
As how you feel for me

But I can't force a feeling
My heart has a mind of its own
And even though you're lovely
It keeps telling me 'No!'

I want to keep you in my life
But that's a selfish ruse
And though I'd love that dearly
It's not something you should choose

You need to let it go now
Find a heart that sings for yours
Spring clean the cobwebs of me
And throw open your doors

This unrequited love will pass
I've been there and remember it well
I may have just made a huge mistake
But I'm afraid only time will tell.

    Sometimes the feeling just comes up short. No wow factor, no deep stirring. You nailed the feelings and emotion of that in this write. Very well done.

    The rhyming was spot on which made the poem flow elegantly.. Thought somewhat sad, the meaning behind it is powerful & sometimes letting go isn't a easy task. But you put it into a perspective that makes sense. (:

    Also, thank you for your lovely comment (:
