Sometimes with One I Love

- Walt Whitman

Sometimes with one I love I fill myself with rage for fear I effuse
   unreturn'd love,
But now I think there is no unreturn'd love, the pay is certain
   one way or another,
(I loved a certain person ardently and my love was not return'd,
Yet out of that I have written these songs.)

from: the "Calamus" poems, found in Leaves of Grass.
