The Love Syndrome


I used to love you,
but I never quite succeeded,
which is why I love you still
and, the worse, the more,
since you were always unattainable
and therefore irresistible
to almost an unbearable degree,
which is why I can’t stop loving you
but must go on
and love you still,
the worse, the more.

Wonderfully expressed, and I can fully empathise, as I am I the same situation, 50 years and counting.
