Secret Song in a Single Heart

…unrequited is still love. Some of the greatest romances told were known only to one person with unreciprocated love carried as a secret song in a single heart.

From Don Juan by Anglo-Scottish poet Lord Byron
one songThen
there were sighs,
the deeper for suppression,
stolen glances,
sweeter for the theft,
burning blushes,
tho’ for no transgression,
Tremblings when met,
and restlessness when left.
