The love that wasn't up for regret

Published on 15 December 2023 at 15:06

I just wanted to be looked at by you 

As the only girl you’ll ever see in this room 

To see me and know I’m the only one for you, 

I wanted to be kept safe in you heart and held by your arms


Why didn’t it hurt to see me not with you 

Did you ever care that all I wanted was to be close to you?

That I had so much I wanted to say to you 

Feelings I craved by you, but you didn’t feel the same way I claimed for two 

Unrequited love hurts, this feeling is something new

leaves the heart shattered, crushed and broken just to name a few 


How would I have known I would’ve never be good enough for you, 

You wanted someone that I can never give to you 

I just wanted you to see me worthy for this dance of two

Plans I had made for me and you, 

But all I have is the memory of something we never got up to,

It’s funny how this has ended for us

I being the one to have broken it off, 

I had to destroy the dream in my mind,

And grieve the loss

Heal from a broken heart, that I could never measure up


I hope again we don’t come across,

Too much fuss over someone who never cared,

Who it didn’t hurt to see me impaired 

When our hands never touched and our eyes never met 

To be a sight he just wants to forget

It didn’t matter if he saw me again or never 

It’s time to cut ties and sever

The love that wasn’t up for regret
