Late for Love

I feel like I've lost
the chance to be great.
I loosened my grip,
turned my back on fate.

I lost what was
and what could have been.
Nor can I think
as to what was my sin.

I'm lacking in something
that I can't seem to grasp.
No feeling of torture
nothing making me gasp.

I can't seem to recall
that certain emotion.
That feeling of elation
at the return of devotion.

I thought I had it
once long ago.
But I moved too late
and was forced to let go.

The past was dredged up
again and again.
By friends over and over
like little clucking hens.

They didn't know
and might not, even now .
The pain I kept hidden
beneath a graceful bow.

One feeling I'm close to
I wish to be free of.
It's being too late
for once requited love.

feelings here are in confusion. a wonderful piece of writing.


I'm sorry.

But you haven't lost your chance to be great. You are already great and you can only get greater. And also: lurking somewhere at your school is an amazing guy just waiting for the chance to find an amazing girl like you. Please please don't waste time on someone who doesn't deserve a goddess like Miss Mary the Brilliant.
