Love Trials (poem)

Does a love that never existed
truly ever die,
to message and call
without receiving much reply,

while one side persisted
the other never tried,
spoken honestly and frankly
to one who would only hide,

but despite that a love resisted
the temptress of ill fate,
and continued to press forward,
to take a leap of faith,

waiting outside the door,
leaving flowers on the floor,
offering a heart of passion,
trying to live up to all the lore,

with each passing offer
admiration turned to hate,
relentlessly asking
but endlessly refused a date,

with each passing day
that love would disappear,
leaving in its place
a new slot for fear,

to be rejected on the spot,
without an explanation,
has led to feelings of distraught
and a lowered expectation,

but the experience of denial
has proven a worthy trial,
building muscles and not scars,
for the next love destined aisle…
