Unrequited Love

(Photo by Kristen Wyman)

A nightingale sang every night,

A song for her beloved.

Her love every night grew deep.

For her Love, everyday she weeps.

Her fellows mocking say-

“Dear your love, purely a vain;
for you there’s not a gain.”
She, on Moon her gaze-
“True love, no loss or gain,

mere sweet suffering and beautiful pain.
No care take I, that you don’t know me.

No care take I, that I am not the one you see.
I still adore you,
In every way, every hue.

Charming gentleman, prince of many hearts.

Charming gentleman, king of many arts.

God, if there, do me a favour,

Let my beloved shine this way, forever”

Love, though requited; pleases each one,

though he be beast, bird or human.

    I’m no Nightingale but i can almost relate.

    “True love, no loss or gain,
    mere sweet suffering and beautiful pain”

    Such a beautiful poem!
    Very few would feel unrequited after reading your poems.

    My dear friend, your love is so precious.
    Each word of your poem is so ambitious.
    I hate to admit but I’m so jealous.
    May you find your beloved, Oh! so chivalrous.

    Beautiful Poem. I also read all the other poems and they were as more beautiful than I thought. I want to ask you a question.

    What inspires you to write poems? Can you write a post explaining the story behind your poems.

      Thank you so much Rita!
      Mostly different things inspire me to write poems, sometimes it is nature, sometimes it is human emotions…the muses have many faces.😁
      As far as the stories behind the poems are concerned…I guess for each one of us it tells us a different story. Then why limit it under one?
      I would love to hear your stories. Tell me, which poem of mine tells you which story? Why just mine , tell me the story behind your favorite poems. I would love to hear them. ☺
