This Secret Is Safe In My Heart


I secretly looked at him


I liked the way he walked

I liked the way he smiled

I liked the way he acted



I secretly listened to him


I liked his the way he talked

I liked the way he listened

I liked the way he sounded



I secretly admired him


I liked the way he looked

I liked the way he blushed

I liked the way he laughed



I secretly thought


I like this man

I like this mysterious man

I like this mysterious man I've met tonight



I secretly knew


The look he gave me

That tiny bit of a second

Was all I got from him



I secretly hear


A voice inside of me whispering

This is love at first sight

But this will forever be

kept a secret



In the secret of my heart


I know he could not be

I know he would not be

I know he should not be

Anything but a memory



This secret is safe in my heart

Simplicity at its finest....complexity at its finest....all in one poem. That is a neat trick and only the good writers can do it.

Well done Made! Have a wonderful weekend!

billybuc, these were just my thoughts after a nice evening with some old and new friends. I'm sure I'll have a great weekend. Tomorrow me and my family is going on a small trip to meet some old friends we haven't seen for a year and we'll meet a little baby girl for the first time. I'm really looking forward to this. Take care and go out and have some fresh air between your lines! :)

jonmcclusk, it is a little sad, but on the other hand it's a nice feeling if you already have someone else you love.

Made - how beautiful and poignant. I once met a guy that I liked - it was an evening out with friends and I met him. But I knew it would be nothing more than a spark of interest after that night because we lived worlds apart. Your poem brought me back to that moment exactly. Thanks for sharing!

epi, I'm glad you told me your secret. Thanks! :) I recently woke up to a warm day after a night with thunder and heavy rain.

.....my thunder and rain was the other night - back to the warmth and sunshine but it's currently 4:07am and just waking up after oversleeping from a nap around 10pm -lol and listen to Led Zepplin's Physical Graffiti album - loud - with a beer and some Hub browsing - the advantages of living out in the country by the lake -

That was one looong nap. My whole family slept too long this morning. We'll have our breakfast in the middle of the day. We have a warm day today - warm measured in the Finnish temperatures. Lol! Enjoy your beer, the music and the morning by the lake. I hope the sun will shine on you to today. :)

.....the sun always shines on me - when we get together in the comment section ....and yes the daybreak is around 6am here with full sun by 7am - and I love watching the daybreak over the lake and the sun coming up too - it is so life affirming .....

I gotta find out that secret from your heart...even if I have to learn Finnish....I guess! JOKES ASIDE, this inspiration touches home. We can relate to the deepness. Wonderfully intertwined with feelings from deep within..!


Made profile image

Made 4 years ago from Finland Author

lord de cross, don't worry - you only have to learn Swedish, because that's my mother tongue. Swedish is related to English, but Finnish is a whole other language. I'm not even sure you can reach my heart with just talking, lol!

I really appreciate your serious words about this poem too. Thank you!

Yes, these connections are real, and lead to fits of fantasy. I have them myself also. More so when I was younger. Sometimes sad when the interaction ends, and real life begins. But still exciting. Thank you for sharing...


Made profile image

Made 4 years ago from Finland Author

A.A. Zavala, it used to be more exciting when I was younger too. Maybe it's just an imagination for a dreamer like me to have these things happening to me. Why have a boring life when you you spice it up with some exciting, but innocent fantasies? Thank you for stopping by.
