She’d long since decided she was better alone

she felt that somehow it was wise,

Although longing for love that was missing

 It stayed absent in any guise.

*

 But when ent’ring her fulcrum of crafting

Inspiration soared forth from her dreams

unrequited love quite forgotten

As she crafted her heart to well-being.
