We women try to understand
But after a while
We can only assume
We perpetuated the love within
Cried a thousand worthless tears
None of it made any difference
Or changed our fate at all.
Falling just a tad short
Of what was to be something grand
I sighed the day I knew it was lost
My voice cracked at the sound of honesty.
In my female mind I thought it was me
Maybe I wasn’t pretty enough, smart enough..
Though everyone kept telling me
That wasn’t the case.
Wishing to transform one day
Much like lycanthropy
But when I wake the next day
I am still only a human.
We can wish our souls never met
Or that feelings could just go away
But they never do
Not really, anyway.
The longer you wait
The less desirable it becomes
Until you no longer want it at all.
