Love with You
I am in love with you,
But you don’t have to love me back.
Or acknowledge my presence,
Or do anything like that.
I’ve fallen in love with you,
Because I need you more than you need me.
Since the devotion I am afflicted with will not leave me be.
Passion is a flame that can spark and ignite.
But the fire that burns for you may flicker and not stay bright.
You never asked for my affection.
You never once requested my love.
So it will only shine at night like a star from above.
Thank you for the pain, because it reminds me that I’m still alive.
My heart may smoke and smolder, but it will survive.
I am in love with you.
