Unfulfilled Love

They say unfulfilled love
Is the most romantic love

Like a moth flying just out of reach
Hope to try again reborn, to beseech

Fulfilled love gets easily satiated, jaded
Love taken for granted soon gets abated

Aspiring for something hard and beyond
Makes you rise and hanker and despond

Living and dying moments, happy and sad
Seesaw of emotions gets you elated and mad

History is proof that unrequited love shards
Embed in time capsules of lovers and bards

Romeo and Juliet, evergreen lovers frequently emoted
Their magnificent unrequited love has fans ever devoted

All passionate poetry, tales, odes and history are witness
Unfulfilled love goads lovers to go beyond self, mindless

Rising waves, angry sky, dark clouds thunder, lightening
Tears lovers asunder in cahoots with destiny frightening

They are important ingredients in love’s bloody gory tale
Maddening, repenting, wanting gnawing pangs and wails

Unrequited love is the most romantic of all love
It is all the stuff that dreams are made of, above

Fulfilled love gets easily satiated, jaded
Love taken for granted soon gets abated

They say unfulfilled love
Is the most romantic love


Unrequited love is always a great thing.
Neil LaBute
American, Director Quotes


The betrothed and accepted lover has lost the wildest charms of his maiden by her acceptance. She was heaven while he pursued her, but she cannot be heaven if she stoops to one such as he!
Ralph Waldo Emerson
1803-1882, American Poet, Essayist


Love is as much of an object as an obsession, everybody wants it, everybody seeks it, but few ever achieve it, those who do will cherish it, be lost in it, and among all, never… never forget it-  Curtis Judalet


I hold it true, whatever befall; I feel it, when I sorrow most; ‘Tis better to have loved and lost Than never to have loved at all.
Lord Alfred Tennyson ,1809-1892, British Poet



Today I begin to understand what love must be, if it exists…. When we are parted, we each feel the lack of the other half of ourselves. We are incomplete like a book in two volumes of which the first has been lost. That is what I imagine love to be: incompleteness in absence.- Erich Fromm



Love is sometimes denied, sometimes lost, sometimes unrecognized, but in the end, always found with no regrets, forever valued and kept treasured. – Anonymous



On the streets, unrequited love and death go together almost as often as in Shakespeare.
Scott Turow , American, Novelist Quotes



Love, unrequited, robs me of my rest: Love, hopeless love, my ardent soul encumbers: Love, nightmare-like, lies heavy on my chest, And weaves itself into my midnight slumbers!  –  William S. Gilbert



A supreme love, a motive that gives a sublime rhythm to a woman’s life, and exalts habit into partnership with the soul’s highest needs, is not to be had where and how she wills.
George Eliot , 1819-1880, British Novelist


I think Romeo and Juliet is uplifting. That’s how much a son wishes to avenge his father. That is how much two young people can love each other
Ben Kingsley , English, Actor Quotes
