For Nobody
cubbzor

I can't help but
 1
feel so painless,
 2
I can't bury my pride below.
 3
I can't wait to
 4
see you standing
 5
there as you smile "hello".
 6
 
 
It's been ten years
 7
since I saw you last,
 8
my have you grown.
 9
My mind has eased
 10
the time between
 11
the years I have known.
 12
 
 
So look at me
 13
for sweet release,
 14
remember the times before.
 15
You're the flower to my bee,
 16
the branches to my tree,
 17
the wings to my crow.
 18
 
 
When you glide away
 19
I'll remember that day,
 20
the day you were my own.
 21
I'd like to say
 22
I was smiling in a way,
 23
but today I am alone.

You might consider a different bird at L17 - something less sinister than poor old crowy.
 — Abracadabra

If you must rhyme, you need consistency throughout.  To say this is cliche would be too easy.  Ten years later with no contact and you're still in a delusional state about how much you were loved?  

There is no authenticity in this, only emotion masquerading as a poem wanna be.

very touching. loved it

Unknown-

What if I told you I was trying to illustrate that delusional state? Define consistent rhyme, because I think this rhyme is, for the most part, consistent
