    Hey, I have to find one example of a poem related to unrequited love.
    I've tried searching google etc but most of the stuff that comes up is really lame.
    So does anyone have any good examples of unrequited love poems?

    Second Best.

    So they asked you:
    What’s it like being second best?
    What’s it like being the second one
    To greet hello, goodbye? The outdone
    One. One would think that you’d look
    Sad to be second in the telephone book,
    To be in the second half of the dream and
    The second one to ask if they understand,
    The second best thought: The Second best.

    So you said, (un-depressed):
    Second best? But that makes me something
    At least, to what I think is my everything.
    And then you sadly smiled back to them all.

    Beautiful.

    It was the greatest smile that I could ever recall.
