Unsaid as in Undone......Dedicated to Fennelseed , our friend !

You truely ........can never go back
to undo
to unsay
to speak of how you feel

Tied up within our minds
in the darkness
are many such words
dreams
visions
hopes

So lets suppose just for one moment
or however long it takes
I had said much
and you had felt it all
where would we be

Such is the curse I suppose
of quiet hearts
of silent souls
of stifled emotions ?
And yet
I think there are words
better left unsaid

Like .......".I always wanted to just
say to you"
or "what would you do if "
only if
And yet ......
what would I have lost?

Centuries of imagining
decades of dreaming
dark nights of wanting
bitter what if's
No ..........Better left unsaid and maybe
even undone?

"No ......No" ....I say aloud
what about me ...my feelings...
and not yours
No more for you but
for me
shout it out !
Set it free Annie !

Thank you my dear friend, I did not expect this, you have opened up my head and peered in.

"A curse"? Yes, and more, like a canker within, you know me too well. The bridges are burnt, but there are other ways to cross a river, especially when the river is me. Watch me flow.....and I will!

You know, you know and I thank you.

Raciniwa , If I could change one thing in the world it would be to empower those who deserve it! That is far far from my power , it comes from inside of you and Annie ! And many ,many who deserve it so much ! Thank you for sharing this as always ....:-}

Hi Gypsy rose, perhaps its just that we share some things in common, the need to free ourselves from that that holds us down. Glad you liked this Thank you ....:=}

A great poetic tribute and very touching. Your use of silence as expression does capture the truth of communication between people. Sometimes we can say volumes without words... just our relationship is enough.

The picture is for you, Ahorseback, I thought you might find inspiration, but never imagined it would be like this!!!

They started to get a bit edgey with an interloper in their midst, but walk the plank,(he,he) no, they took flight, for the pond suddenly seemed too small and too still. I think they were heading for the ocean :)
