Unrequited Love

Unrequited Love

BY BOB WILLIAMS

Does anyone know

unrequited broken love

as well as man?

I come home to see her there,

lying about,

with her beautiful fullness.

Yet, she does nothing to help.

I cannot fight her.

She turns away from me still.

I provide her with food, love

a soft place to rest,

and she comes to me for not.

I feel her independence.

It stings a broken soul,

and yet I cannot turn away.

I won’t run.

I will always return

to my love.

Such is a life,

a tedious balance,

between man

and cat.
