Courage


Drawn into him
Day and night
Attraction, attention, temptation
He was mine

Insides would glow
On the sight of him
In his glorified togetherness  
I would begin to swim

Jealousy took over
When he talked about her
That he seemed happy
Was the only succour

Oh, the suffering,
This heart endured
It does take courage to love
What isn’t meant to be yours!
