Unrequited Love

by Milly Hayward

Gentle dove with crystal breath
with plumes that touch my heart
you bring a message of my death
when you say we'll be apart

I will not leave, here I must stay
for my heart remains with you
darling, love will find a way
if you could believe it too
Dove looked down with sorrow
and shook her head once more
there can be no tomorrow
for with me, you cannot soar

You are a cat, I am your lunch
what future could we share
I hear you, but I have a hunch
you'd eat me, without a care
