Burning Inside

Unrequited love is a terribly painful thing,
Don’t even know why I entertain the thought,
Nothing is ever going to happen,
1200 miles between us is not enough,
She adds her arms to extend the well and further push me away,
Why do I feel so unworthy that I chase someone anyway,
Insatiable urge perhaps to tan my own hide,
Each attempt that is shot down,
Further breaks my pride,
If I so badly want to be burnt, it is 101 outside.
