I want love, but the all consuming, painfully meant to be, desirable, undeniable love I want doesn't seem to be any closer to my grasp. This is about how it only hurts not and I envy those who have it, and though I say I don't want it, I'm better off without it, I really crave it, but, own I shan't, so it seems.

Love; What is it reputable for?

Infatuation; This discomfort, this ache?

Devotion; Ought it have my heart sore?

Tenderness; Shan't I posses my own fate?

Adoration; Comes and goes on it's own.

Revere; Require, do I, it's empathy?

Cherish; For what virtuous need has it shown?

Passion; That it lack without me.

For ought I have, thought lack I do, require I must, own I shan't.

For need I have, thought yearn I do, envy I must, own I shan't.

For should I have, thought desire I do, hope I must, own I shan't.

For suffering I have, though crave I do, love I must, own I shan't.
