A Poem by Colette

unrequited love - story of my life


I don’t mean to sound cliche
Like a worn out Adele song, but

I must have cried a thousand times
My subconscious mind visits you in my sleep
Leaving my conscious mind haunted by day


I’m confused by you
The “Do you?” or “Do you not?”
The “Why?” and “Why not?”
The “How could you possibly leave me to die?”
Without You.  Cold.

Now my calls are restricted
Thanks to Mrs. Vindictive
And you are not man enough to man up
To live your life with fewer regrets
And trade up.

It seems the only way to keep a man
Is to get knocked up
To threaten bleeding a dude dry
To control their devices
To clip their wings, so
They can’t get high


I always wanted a man to Choose me
Choose to be with me, because
I am a woman of worth
Because you, and they, have all said
That I was the best girlfriend you ever had

But you and they all leave me
so f*****g sad
Ok, maybe not them, but you
Cuz I numb myself of the memory of you
With them.

I sleep alone
I eat alone
I refuse all the proposals (mostly for sex)
I want something meaningful
I want to be felt
I want to be seen
I want to be chosen over those b*****s
Who are so damn mean!


I just want to know something…
I want to know what it’s like…
What would it be like to have someone Love Me

Like I love you.
