A poem about what it feels like to be infatuated with someone who does not return your feelings - and the way it consequently affects your emotions.

This is messy. I know it's messy. It's no work of art. I wrote it in about three or four minutes, in all honesty. I just needed to get some feelings off my chest. :)

I wanted love, you provided rejection
I fell beyond the point of redemption
I put my trust in you; lost all control
Felt as though without you I couldn't be whole

I hated you, but I loved you too
Caught between feelings, not knowing what to do
I saw you in even my darkest dreams
Infatuation is not what it seems

It is a dark place with no escape
I tried to get out, but it was too late
It is like a dungeon, imprisoning my heart
It burns and bites, skins and scars

You smile at me like you have no idea
Even though I've tried to make my feelings clear
I've pined for too long, but how do I leave
When you've wormed your way in and suffocated me

Kiss me and take my breath away
I love you more than I can ever say
Hold me, even if it's just for this night
Sometimes wrong things can feel right
