Unrequited love.

The Love Letter

He sought a place of solitude
for this was no easy endeavor.
Somehow he must let her know
that his heart was hers forever.
Baring his soul to his lady,
he searched for words to express
how she had filled his senses,
and banished his loneliness. 
He spoke of sunshine and laughter,
recalling nights of bliss,
drowning in her smile,
knowing her breath-taking kiss.
Then gently folding the pages,
he sent his undying devotion.
But the letter came back marked 'return',
The seal he had kissed, unbroken.

Sometimes that is the way our love gets returned too. Unopened that is. I have met a few during my life that I thought I loved and tried to give my life to them only have them return it to me unopened and ignored completely.

Great Work Barb!
