[Thoughts] One Day (Second in the Sappy Poetry Series)

Okay, so much for "daily". I've got work every day but Wednesday this week (which is good, because, hey, I like money, but bad, because, hey, I like free time). So, apologies to everyone out there who enjoys chatting or roleplaying with me. (That's right, all three of you.)

I was lying in bed just now, and my thoughts were on love. Specifically, the unrequited type (with which I am presently quite well acquainted). Before I knew it, this little piece was composing itself in my head, and I had to get it out onto paper into text. Sorry for assaulting you innocent bystanders with it.

One Day

One day I will free myself from this love.

One day I will take my heart back
 from a woman who would never give me hers.
She sees me as a child,
 as a friend,
 as nothing more,
 and one day that thought will be painless.

One day I will accept that she doesn't love me,
 and one day after that I won't mind it a bit.

One day I will see her on the street
 and my heart will not speed up,
  my cheeks will not turn red,
  I will not stumble or slip;
 I will simply smile and greet her
 and go on.

One day I will no longer love her.
My brain knows this for a fact.
But my heart
 still hurts
 and still

(Aaugh, this one's even worse than the last. Is it possible to get worse at something with practice? Because I sure seem to be managing it.)

Feeling: down

Hey, don't worry about that piece of writing being bad. It seems to be it's more about the concept of unrequited love, which is good; you have to be able to understand the true concept before you can put in all those elegant metaphores and such.

By the way, work is the bleh.

Ah, unrequited love... been there, done that, still have days when it hurts.

And if writing bad poetry is therapy that works for you, by all means, write bad poetry.
