I recently finished Lang Leav’s Love & Misadventure. It’s a great book of poetry but it took some time to figure out that it is not my cup of tea.
This week’s Monday poem is called The Girl He Loves.
There was a man who I once knew,
for me there was no other.
The closer to loving me he grew,
the more he would grow further.
I tried to love him as his friend,
then to love him as his lover;
but he never loved me in the end–
his heart was for another.
