“The Complexities of Unrequited Love”

The Complexities of Unrequited Love


i can’t lie about anything

especially not to you

but if i told you the truth

my truth

youd fall apart anyways so why

do i have to wallow in my own tears and pity

telling you the truth 

when i could pick myself up 

and dust myself off

and hide behind the mask

the caricature

the lie 

that you think defines

who i am
