Unrequieted Love

Image from here

Jump  she said , How  high

Was his gentle  reply.

He  would  do  anything for her

Yet  she  scorned  him and  treated  him like  a cur.

Presents he lavished on her  daily

She  accepted  them then  dismissed him gayly

She  was always on  her way  out

Never  a thank  you, she’d  just  floor him  with a pout.

One  day he could  take  no  more

So  he  pushed  a  note  through  her  front door.

I can’t go  on trying  to  get  your favour

I am wasting  my  time, it shows in your  behaviour .

On her own

Then  he was gone  and  she  was on her own

She  was shocked  to the core, cut right to the bone.

She  really  had  not  realized  how  much  he’d  done  for her

No  she  did  not  realize  she loved  him  til he  was no longer  there!

    isn’t that always the way… you don’t know what you got ’til it’s gone!

    Serves her right. You never appreciate what you had until it’s no longer there.
