Unrequited

________________________

Every glance… averted

Each word… you never speak

Every step… farther away

Oh, love, how can you not know?

Your apathy, it kills me…

Tears my soul…

Melts my thoughts…

Chokes my bated breaths…

But in this murder… no one dies

I’m just left alone again,

With a ragged hope that you will change

The ending of this song
