Agony of loving someone; heart wrenching pain of not being loved in return.
My world is crumbling today, sorrow at its peak
Will someone wave a magic wand and help me make peace?

Can anyone hear my desperate cries?
Of pain and tears and piercing knives

This throbbing bursts veins in my head
What is happening? Why am I not dead?

I feel my torment, my heart aches
Solution there is none, my life this will take

My breath is labored, every movement an effort,
Mind feels dead, eyes sore with tears..

I grapple with myself, try to bring myself to sense
To no avail, oh! to no avail!

Pain, hot searing pain, it surges, it stabs
With daggers drawn and blades that slash

I run wildly, groping in the darkness of my heart
Blinded I am with love, unrequited

Every look you give me takes my breath away
From afar I inhale your fragrance each day

You are my cross that I have to bear
With weary shoulders, hurt and despair

My love for you, of which you know not a verse
A day shall dawn, freeing me of this curse

The tears I shed, stained pillows as my witness
I invoke divinity: Save me from further distress.
