A Love Unrequited
by Cameron J. Herrington

I ask you now as I have before,
When will you love me, shall I wait the more?
But the solemn hills and the effervescent sea
Are all but too much for you to hear my plea.

I ask you now, as I will in the end,
When might I kiss you... may I kiss you again?
But your beauty, too much, and your passion, too great,
Just leave me a letter and reading... I shall wait.

I ask you now as I did today,
Shall I love you... what shall you say?
But the empty cries and the longing reply:
Alone I shall stay and alone I shall die.

I ask you now, as I will tomorrow,
Am I enough, in your heart might I burrow?
You heard my voice and spoke with gentle lips,
"Together we shall die, and in your heart mine lives."
