Bittersweet Love

Bittersweet Love, a poem by Robert A. Sieczkiewicz

A deep love for you, but you love me not
You say that words of love I must destroy
To love not I’d have to tear out my heart

At first sight of you my heart fell apart
I displayed the joy of a little boy
A deep love for you, but you love me not

You resisted love from the very start
Treating my love as if it were a toy
To love not I’d have to tear out my heart

If possible from my heart you would part
But to my life you’ve become my buoy
A deep love for you, but you love me not

Dreams of us being of a single knot
Such a lasting act brought to you no joy
To love not I’d have to tear out my heart

Confused from not understanding your plot
Confused on what effort to next employ
A deep love for you, but you love me not
To love not I’d have to tear out my heart
