Six Word Fridays: Love

Unrequited


Love and devotion, like Siam’s twins
bound together, yet not always alike.
Recipient of love not reciprocating unconditionally –
at what cost is it presented?
Requiring devotion on every possible level,
but remitting nothing except empty promise.
I love you, and yet you
have no understanding of the depth.
How long must I await comprehension?
Love’s reach is beyond words uttered.
The unspoken sentiment speaks volumes sometimes
with more honesty than your voice.
***
I’ll write my heart to you;
send it out to uncertain seas.
And should the message reach you,
cast your reply on turbulent waves.
A rolled scroll in a bottle,
might return to my waiting shore.
Empty Bottles
