Love Unreturned

Beaten down to a secret place
Where it hides curled and wounded
Lies a feeling called love
You know it is what it is
Because it hurts so much

Blushing cheeks worth ruby’s praise
Eyes that sparkle a diamond’s blaze
Speaking in every which way
That I couldn’t get myself to
And yet, you wouldn’t stand and gaze

It aches, sure it does
Silence bewrays more than words
But it doesn’t make my heart break
For you gave my nights a dream
And my heart a verse

A brief, dreamy and kind delight
A moment that stood still in time
Would you’ve thought how foolishly
Works this heart, to believe
That even love unreturned
Has a rainbow just as beautiful
