Un-relinquished Feelings

Updated on August 1, 2014

For once I have a love that I will forever hold in.

I may not even tell it to a friend.

I am even afraid to write about it with this pen.

Being hurt so many times has left me paralyzed

To the feelings that I feel inside.

It has left me blind to what's wrong and what's right.

How will he ever know where my heart lies,

If I am afraid to open up about the feelings that I hide?

Time to unwind, that is what I tell myself,

But Im still left with the feelings of what if?

Still left with the agony and the wondering

if this love really exists?

In the beginning he made me feel like a princess

And as our friendship grew,

He made me feel like a queen.

I almost started to wonder if he would be the one

To drop down on one knee.

Fairy tales do exist I guess because this is certainly one

That I will hold to and never get off my chest.

Love and Pain

      Hadn't been here in a while. Just reading this poem. Yet another very moving writing. I think many of us have been at this crossroad. I guess I've just always been one who never wanted to look back and say..."Mannn..I wish I had......."

      There's a certain kind of happy mystery that surrounds hidden love. Don't spoil it by exposing it before you're quite certain that it is time. What an awesome feeling!

      Love and Self Doubt... should never be mixed and I too have written of the such destructively/sweet affairs. You present it well here in words that defy your heart.. you know.. the ones you question! Nice effort and keep honing the skills of writing poetry, you are well on the way.. but.. don't let doubt get in the way poet! Take care.. PD
