Love's Unrequited Paradoxicity


Love of the unrequited type...
Ah! How paradoxical it be!
Even more paradoxical
Than that of the returned type...

return to me my boomerang
if ironic paradox be
bring on your wings an offering
return to set this captive free

Love is love whether returned or not.

It gives all meaning to life,
But when not returned
It drives us into insanity!
Constantly contemplating
Upon what may or may not be...

provide a reason, supply a rhyme
keep despair exiled forever
to hearts a breathe of gentle clime
elixir to heart's endeavour

If you have not experienced
This type of love,
This unrequited love
Then you shall not understand
The joyous part.
You will think it all tragic.
But there is a joyous part!

you freely give from joyous grace
once prisoner of love withheld
escape on wings of kiss' embrace
receive twin souls, tender fire meld

Love is love whether returned or not.

my need reaches to the heavens
despaired reply from there to find
where is that spark this chest quickens
love without truth is love unkind

Whether that person feels the same or not,
I still love her, and to have someone
That I love so much,
Brings certain joy unto me...
But certain grief to not recieve the love in return...

It is the most tragic grief
And the most joyous joy
At the same time!

Love, paradox of paradoxes!

  Very good! I loved eveything except the last line, it did not work for me. I loved how ou told of the joy in just loving even if it is not returned to you. That is one of the wisest things to know in life. I loved the rhyme scheme and the flow. I loved your wording as well. Almost Old English. Nice work!
