Unattainable

Unattainable

A Poem by Kate

I daydream of you
at all times of the day

Discreetly I yearn
To be soon swept away

My adoration is secret
My infatuation unknown.
My passion stays hidden,
However quickly it's grown.

Disappointment captures me
When I study your eyes
Do you spot love in mine
Or am I great at disguise?

For another you long,
It is clearly not me.
I've been cast by your spell

And I need to break free.


You can’t always get what you want,

An old song has said.

Yet I don't know if I want you,

I think I need you, instead.


When your eyes are on me

I feel a flicker of hope.

But it fades away quickly

Floats away, just like smoke


Maybe it'd be best

If I go on alone.

To let go of the hurt,

Of the yearning I've known


Why do I latch on?

Never will you be mine. 

You show no interest for me 

Yet I keep looking for signs.

My mind's littered with fantasy,
My love for you's unexplainable
My passion's unrequited
You are so unattainable.
