Hope against Hope.....



I will love you forever

But you won’t love me a bit – I can bet;

You won’t even think of me – never and ever;

Still I’ll keep on loving you just like that.

? ? ? ? ?

Even if I die for you, my love

You won’t even look back

for once to see my fate.

I know you will choose to love

a lifeless gravel or a vagabond but me,

Still you will be the one and only one for me.

Oh, you are not cruel, it’s just my fate

And if you’ll know my feelings, you’ll just hate.

? ? ? ? ?

But no matter, till eternity I’ll have to wait.

For only hope is what I have with me

And I hope that my hope will win

One day ….you see…

? ? ? ? ?

"I’ll keep on loving you" and a few other phrases really 'catch the feelings'.Don't you think that love is it's own reward,it's own fulfillment?
Nice one :)

is sweet, but I hope your hope has grown into something more spetacular, like 'knowing'
I hope this year brings you peace in knowing that, that kind of love is nearer to you.
keep thinking sweetly :-)

Thanks for liking my poem. I would really like to add more poems on Booksie but.... uhh, I don't know why I can't get time for my favorite hobby.

Your love is so pure that you are freeing your beloved with the guilt of not returning you love, this is selfless and pure love....
Very emotive and touching poem, God bless you dear !!

To tell you the truth, these were my genuine feelings those days. But now these innocent feelings seem to have vanished somewhere. Thanks for taking your precious time and reading and commenting :)

OMG... that is a lot of love (i'd say move on, life is bigger than a girl) but it will be a sin to even suggest so.. i understand those feelings.. Keep writing!

Some beautiful heartfelt lines. Wait till eternity, the best!

Hoping and waiting knowing it won't happen is difficult and well expressed in this piece.
