Happy Mani’s Day!
“Undying” – by Edward W. Raby, Sr. May 3-4, 2020
My love for you never dies
But that is not as good as it seems.
It drains me as it is not returned
Like a vampire’s kiss,
Thrilling and draining.
I give and get nothing.
You drain the blood of my love
From within it bleeds into you
But you are indifferent
Like a bored eternal vampire
you have moved on,
but I remain the one that is drained.
I miss what your love did for me,
but I hate what it does to me
If only it would die.
Perhaps I could slay this love
With a wooden stake peirce it forever
But I cannot – for it is undying.
I am only going to note here that this is the first poem I have written in a while and I truly feel this. Perhaps it is no the greatest, but it is an expression of a part of my heart.
