Whilst you spurn me,

I stare sadly beyond you,

wondering how such circumstances could be altered.

I suppose it is not a coincidence

that potent concoctions to induce love

are mentioned only in fiction;

likewise, the existence of Cupid is

only wishful thinking.

Love is an entity that cannot be

artificially brought about,

and so by many it is

exalted,

praised,

damned,

given up on.
