E. H.

Oh! The pain!
First love denied!
I’ve searched in vain,
My heart has sighed.

Does her heart glow
Of me the same?
Does she know
Of this loves pain?

I dream at night
Of this loves loss,
Hope hubris might
Cause paths to cross.

But oh! My guilt
It holds me back,
My darkness spilt
So hope I lack.

Is her life full?
Does she love aught?
My selfish goal
Does it mean naught?

If we should meet
Again this life,
‘Twould make so sweet
This lost love's strife.
