Requite

Somebody told me
that no one deserves to be in love
with someone who doesn’t love them back
and that anyone who found themselves
in that situation
should look for a partner
who could reciprocate their love.

For years
I didn’t understand the statement
not having a core of self
to believe that i deserved anything better.
I thought unrequited love
was the best love
the only true love
for a romantic to have.

But now my life has changed
in oh, so many ways
and I get it.
I see that love is something
that can be shared.
Love is something for two people
not one.
I see it.
I understand
I simply reject it
for myself.

I will stay in the bushes
watching the object of my affection
so it need not be sullied
by mortal things.
It is for the best.
It is what I deserve.
