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 i don’t worry about leases but what it feels like i’ll tell you it’s been summer for nearly two years now.
