Treasure Island

RoseAnn V. Shawiak

(October 6,1950 / New Jersey)

Love Never Realized


Tiredly waiting to reach out to someone, passing by every
single chance, because I'm not good enough.

Desperately wanting to talk about something - anything -
and never do.

Love stalks me from the shadows, never daring to creep out
into the light of day and take me by the hand.

Always scurrying inside the realm of make-believe - never
bringing to fruition any source of love.

Days go by, as so many pages in a book, and love is never
realized.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
