Unrequited love...it hurts. But then, perhaps it's not love after all...

I gazed into your face tonight,

Eyes veiled as per norm,

And wondered at your graceful stride

And marveled at your form -

And questioned how one full of grace 

Could summon such a storm.


But then you shifted suddenly

And so I turned my gaze,

And quelled the same unnerving thought

That's plagued me now for days:

"Why won't you hold a steady eye

And let his turn astray?"


Oh, foolish me! I'm still enthralled

Though seven years have passed,

And seven more will likely find me 

Just as at the last - 

A sister to the chosen one:

A Leah - an outcast.
