He looks at her so lovingly,

Smiles secretly,
And falls in love with her, knowingly.

He readily gives his heart out
Perfectly knowing she’ll break it apart.
To the sky he shouts,
“She owns my heart!”
Even though her feelings do not equal his.

He is but a work of fiction,
Of books and of movies.
He exists only in the mind.
But if he were real,
He’d be a gem like rubies.
