Love Denied
by Avathar Valcana

Love, or infatuation, hurts us all and hopefully we all survive to write about it:

I see you though I try not to look,
It was my eternal soul you took,
I know how you feel towards me,
But of you, I'll never be free;

Love that I'd hoped we could share,
Never seen, but dreamed would be there,
I accepted the pain you gave,
For there was no love for me to save;

Though friends you really hoped to be,
I know you're the only one for me,
I'll search for one that can compare,
But will return my love with equal flair.
