Unrequited love and creativity

DSC05390If every love that reared its head

Was reciprocated, its appetite fed

I think it would be a loss to mankind

Erosion of creative expression we’d find-

For unrequited love’s poignant incantation

Has been the catalyst for literary creation,

Spurred musical compositions mellifluous, 

Inspired poetry, exquisite and scrumptious

For rejected lovers have a need to express

Their heartbroken feelings, so the pain can be less

Trying to piece their broken lives and hearts

Masterpieces they create, in brilliant small parts

While those who have been more fortunate

Are with each other, and cannot wait

To live together, marry, a family start

Worried about everything except the heart

They have nothing that can into art be transformed

Their happiness is simple and unadorned

Art requires the pathos of a rejected soul

Contentment and happiness have minimal role

So painful it is, and heart-breaking, it’s true

Love unrequited has a higher purpose too!
