Unrequited Love

by Jennifer L Banks

As yellow leaves cover the grass,
and dark grey clouds with rain
hot cocoa and marshmallows.
I snuggle by a roaring fire and dream.
A Sunday Kind of Love – Etta James

I observe from the dark,
Stepping not onto the path towards you
For others are wandering upon it
Feeding off of your words, and I am last in line.
Walk with Me – Apoptgyma Berzerk

It’s very hard to fade away.
Hope is a foolish idea that leads you
down wrong paths.
And you waste time over it.
Days go by – Dirty Vegas

images sent,
words written,
conversations shared and kept.
cannot bare to delete them,
yet they are truly for nothing.
Am I right?
I’ll Fall With Your Knife – Peter Murphy
So much wasted.
struggled with words released,
foolishly look back at them
All has been for nothing perhaps.
If words weren’t spoken,
they would be trapped.
Now they scratch.
I wrote the truth.
Holding on – VNV Nation

Smoke and mirrors
Chasing blindly
I know more now,
underlying truths
Hidden among vague veils
have leaked like bad ink onto cheap paper.
Even silence tells a story.
Why - Annie Lennox

Is honesty a white hot heat
But you will not touch the fire.
Instead God strings along the angels
taking their hearts.
Watching each one fall.
Something More Then This – October Project

I could’ve made other plans.
I could’ve changed direction.
But the honesty came too late.
What was in it for me?
As I traverse uphill
Tell me how the story ends.
……..and don’t forget the truth.
Make me Cry – Concrete Blonde


Author's Note: Each stanza has a song attached to it that "helped" create it. It flowed like leaves falling down to earth, each with it's own path until it rested on the ground.
