Labour of Love

byCobra2100©

For years he loved her…for years he wanted to have her… so many chances were there yet he did not take them… so many times he wanted to tell her how he felt but did not feel good enough… then it became too late… she was another’s… her love was lost to someone else… what could he do?.. What could he say?.. He did not know… his heart was broken… he died a thousand deaths… but he remained… a friend when she needed one… they spoke all the time… and finally true feelings came out… she had loved him all this time… she had wanted him to ask her… but he had not… his love for her had held him back… his confidence within himself was not there… he knew he was ugly… he knew there was nothing he could offer… just his love was all… but he could not have her… she was with another… then it happened… she broke up from the other one… he looked at her and she at him… knowing that now they could be one… knowing that at last their souls could become one… they did… they got together… they were one in every breath… but then the other came back… he wanted her with him… she looked in her heart and went back to the other one… he was lost again… he knew he could not compete… his heart broke totally… but he stayed… he had to be strong and cope with it all… he stayed all the way through as much as he could… hurt writhing within him… but the love a never ending one… he stayed faithful to her… he would not have another… he stayed by her side… and was there when she needed him… he saw her and wanted her everyday… but he did not interfere… he kept his feelings hidden and quiet… his heart he kept closed… then she came back to him… leaving the other again… but again she went back and left him alone… then she came back yet again… this time promising not to leave… he took her back… his love totally unending… but she left him again… this time for someone different… he looked… he thought… his eyes welled up with tears… his heart was broken badly… his whole world was ripped apart… he had nothing left inside of him… his whole being died… yet he stayed… he was there again for her… he loved her that much… she left the one she was with… again coming back to him… he took her back yet again… his love still as strong as ever… it lasted for a while… but then she told him this time… her heart belonged still to the first one… he looked at her and smiled… hiding all his feelings… all his hurt… he just looked at her and told her he loved her… and then went to find her one she wanted… he found him… he spoke to him… he asked him to take her back… he would not at first… so he went down on both knees… clasped his hands together… and begged… the first time in his life he had… he begged him to take her back… eventually the other agreed… taking her back to him… while he stayed and watched his love walk away… his soul had been trodden on… his heart walked over… yet he remained… he stayed with her… he helped as much as he could… then when she came to find out… that only he could offer that love… only he had the strength to remain… she looked deeply into her heart and went back to him… telling him how she felt… telling him how she loved him… he looked at her crying… and took her back… now they spend time… loving one another… now they spend time… not wanting to go through it again… he knows his heart and he knows his soul… it belongs to her and always will…
