Shameful Thoughts Around Rejection

It’s a shame that you’re not more attracted to me
And I am sad to see you go to another’s bed.
I feel a loss of worth knowing that I am
More of a curiosity than an interest
And a sense of shame at the energy
I put into caring for you from afar
Is this cuckoldry, or am I simply blind
To the fact that my attachments destroy how
I show up in this world, a man racked with
The guilt of love – of seeing the beauty and good
In you, and knowing that sight shall never be returned.
