Day 3 :)

He said 'and from misery is that you love,
and (the one) who you love, loves other than you',
But I beg to differ,
Actually from misery is that you remain separated from the one you love,
Though you long for their company,
You remain distant,
From misery is that the sun cannot stay in its place,
So as to freeze time for you to spend together.
From misery is that your love for him cannot be contained,
And so it flows easily from your lips,
Can be read simply by the looks you give,
The bright warm smile upon your face;
Your breast far too narrow to keep it in,
So it spills,
Till the whole world knows of your love,
And yet!
The one you love never hears of this,
Not even a whisper;
And yet you O poor soul,
Will never admit,
Your love for him.
