no pain is sweet

there’s a want to be wanted by someone you want
a need to be needed when you know that you can’t
have deep conversations with a fluttering heart
a slow goodnight to soften the part

there’s a hope to be loved by someone you love
prayer for a happiness that you deserve
effort and tears returned in kind
reciprocation in both body and mind

there’s no joy in longing for a flower across
a stream of apathy or feelings lost
no pain is sweet, no sadness is wanted
an unrequited love is better off unplanted

where’s the pleasure in knowing you can’t keep
a forbidden romance laced with fitful sleep
no pain is sweet, no sadness is wanted
a love without blessing is better off unplanted

there’s a want to be loved by someone you need
a desire for the fairytale in which you believed
as a child who yearned for neither more nor less
as a soul who still hopes for only the best

but there are no smiles in reaching for a hand
attached to a heart that doesn’t understand
no pain is sweet, no sadness is wanted
a wounded love is better off unplanted
