unrequited love

i've been commissioned 
to write for a film about
	unrequited love
but i don't believe in
	unrequited love
it's either
	love
	or it isn't

so i wrote this instead:

feelings of love
an elastic experience
things that i can't tell you about
a ship that isn't built for safety
i'm estranged from a support system
i'm being careful with hearts
and i don't worry about leases
but what it feels like
i'll tell you:

it's been summer for nearly two years now.
