You watch him from a distance
You love to see him smile
You wish one day he might be yours
If only for a while

You wish that you could tell him
To have the strength to say,
“I love you and I wish that you
Could feel the same one day!”

Your heart beats as he comes towards you
Only to walk on by
You try to tell yourself you don’t love him
Try to believe your lie…

You wish, you dream, you hope, you pray
That you could be together
Maybe if you could make him see
That you two could last forever.....
Unrequited Love....
Doesn't it just suck :(

I feel the pain! It's the worst when it's your friend and he/or she doesn't notice and if they do, they say they felt the same, but then they leave you by going out with someone else... <--- this has happened to me. It hurts

OMG. I really understood/related to this.

Yes. Yes it does suck.

This poem, however, doesn't. :)

I would never expect her to love me back: what are the odds anyway?

I'm just so down because she won't give me a chance...

I had been through unrequited love before. It was several years ago, but I still remember my closest friend becoming my new love interest. We've been together for 2 years and four months in a happy Long Distance Relationship. Due to circumstances of his home, he wants to move out here. Is it wrong for me to be a little nervous?

This is pretty much my life in a nutshell :( But I just gotta keep marching on :) The one good thing about it is that it teaches you to rely on yourself and to discover how strong you really are. Okay, that was corny, but still :D Amazing poem, I love it :iconmonkeyloveplz:

The good thing about unrequited love... is that you find out who you really are and how you react to certain things. You realize you're stronger than you think. Much stronger. :heart:

Told him. He didn't want me. Now I watch him walk over to me and my friends, not nearly as much to talk to me. I miss his smile when it was so pure, when he looked at me and felt happy. Now he looks at me and feels something else. Something I don't want. We were getting so close. God, it hurts.
