From Our Readers: If It's Not Love, What Could It Be?
They said it's not love.
But if it isn't love,
Why does it hurt so bad?
Why is it so painful?
Why am I still willing to wait?
Is it still infatuation?
When I know that it kills me yet I'm still hoping and fighting,
Even if I know that you'll be forever blind with my love.
It isn't easy for me.
It will never be easy,
Never be easy for anyone.
Everything makes me think of you.
That's hard because I know
That I never entered your mind even for a second.
But I still hope that someday, even it it's not today,
I hope that someday you'll give me a chance.
Give me the chance to love you,
To love you endlessly and unconditionally.
But why is life so complicated?
Why can't we just loved back by the one we love?
Why can't we be happy with the one we love?
Although, I'm still happy,
Still happy knowing that you exist,
Knowing youre happy even if it's with somebody else.
I can wait, even if it will take forever.
