A Poem by Lonely Islander




Is it just fate,

Or the positive force of nature

 That interferes in what could be

Our eternal dance?


Is it the blockage in our voice boxes,

Or the utmost fear of society

And our delicate reputation

That keeps our lips tight shut?


Is it the thought of rusting away,

Or the fear of their disgusted looks

That keeps you at a distance?


Is it me?

Is it you?

Is it us?


Maybe it’s the law of nature

That we only remain well-wishers

Maybe it’s society

Or my virtue and conscience

That’s responsible for the pain.


Maybe it’s the fact that you are more of an inspiration

A support or a base

Maybe it’s the fact that I don’t really love you

Maybe it’s the fact that you probably never even thought about loving me.


Yes it’s me

Yes it’s you

And although it hurts a little,

We are always going to be

Two completely different souls

And whatever feelings I have inside for you

Will always remain confined in my tiny self

In a little cage

An excellent poem. It clearly illustrates heartache and the thoughts that come with it!

it's like a continuation of "will you"... the part 2... :) in here the romance is quite clear now... that your and/his love might be forbidden by society or the law of nature... its seems like the bridge of love is short for the vast differences in your worlds is an ocean long... great work my friend.

I like it! I've been in roughly this situation before. I especially like the line "the blockage in our voice boxes", as I have had that exact physical sensation.
Still, maybe unrequited love is the only perfect love (in our minds)."
