Murray, UT, USA
Author's Note: This is a poem of unrequited love that I wrote several years ago. Hope you like it!
For tonight, make believe that you love me;
Oh, I know that it isn't true!
But, the weight of the world is upon me,
And I need you to help me pull through.
Just give me your hand to hold onto,
And let me gaze into your eyes.
Then, tell me you'll love me, forever;
And, tonight, I'll believe all these lies.
The sky is o'ershadowed with darkness,
And the bright moon is hidden from sight.
But, I know I can make it 'til morning,
If I think that you love me, tonight.
