UNREQUITED WORDS PRESENTS
Could I Bear it If You Loved Me Back
You reply to my smiles with a nod,
To my words with a smile,
To my letters with a pat on the back,
And, I pine for more from you, for more of you,
Thinking that your eyes look through me,
That I don’t exist for you.
I cry myself to sleep,
And then I'm at peace.
What if you start responding to my love,
Start to understand my feelings,
Start warming up to me,
Could I withstand that force,
Could I bear the love,
Could my tiny heart stand this new battle?
Once drowned, could I ever surface?
