Medium Poems

1. “Wistful Longing”

Oh, how my heart aches for you
With each passing moment, it’s true
My love for you burns bright and clear
But it seems you simply can’t hear

I watch you from afar each day
Hoping you’d look my way
But you never seem to notice
The love in my eyes, so flawless

My heart remains heavy with desire
For a love that you don’t require
So I’ll keep my love a secret
And in my heart, I’ll always keep it

2. “Unrequited Hearts”

Two hearts beating as one
But only one is filled with love
The other beats in silence, unheard
A love that can’t be returned

Oh, the pain of unrequited love
A love that can’t be undone
Two hearts forever connected
But a love that can’t be resurrected

I’ll love you from afar
Our love forever marred
A heart that beats for you alone
Even if it remains unknown

3. “Love That Goes Unseen”

A love that goes unseen and unheard
A love that remains buried in my heart
Oh, how I wish you could see
The love that I hold for thee

My heart beats with longing and desire
For a love that will never transpire
I’ll hold onto this love each day
Even if it fades away

So here’s to a love that goes unrequited
A love that remains uninvited
I’ll hold onto it forevermore
Even if it leaves my heart feeling sore

Long Poems

A Love Unreturned

I sit and watch you from afar,
Wondering if you know who you are,
A shining star in my universe,
But all you see is just another verse.

I long to hold you in my arms,
But you are always surrounded by charms,
And so I stand here all alone,
Wishing I could make you my own.

I’ve tried to talk to you before,
But you never seem to give me more,
Than a polite smile or a nod,
And then you move on, my heart a sod.

I can’t help the way I feel,
It’s like a wound that will never heal,
No matter how much I try to hide,
My love for you just can’t subside.

Sometimes I dream that you love me too,
That all of this is not just a cruel taboo,
In my mind, we could be so right,
But in reality, I’m not your type.

I know it’s foolish, but I keep hoping,
That maybe one day you’ll realize my loving,
And that you too will feel the same,
As my heart burns with this unending flame.

But until then, I’ll just sit here,
And watch you with a jealous tear,
Hoping someday that you’ll see,
That we were always meant to be.
