A haiku for unrequited love

Wanting more I pined.
Though I knew t’was all in vain,
I did not give up.

Loving you I hoped,
Someday you would see my plight.
That has never been.

Spitting words, I wished
My missives would arrive in peace.
But they never did.

You said to leave us
As we were. Just friends. No strings
That would never be

Forgive me if I’m
Recalcitrant, hard to shake,
I am flesh and blood.
