About the Poem

The exploration of loving feeling from someone not ready to open his heart. Intense feelings that must be kept to oneself, feelings we have all had at some time.

A Few Visitor Comments

This is how i feel at the moment with life and people. I was looking for another poem and this one caught my eye. I believe it was very well done.
His words seems to echo what how I felt not so long ago about my present relationship. It was like reading my own emotions. Very moving and so true.
That was so touching, I feel almost the same about someone too. :)

Dark Silence

To you I would surrender
And take down the wall
Pour out my heart
Just to see if it would fall

It seems no greater a distance
Have I found to suffice
To hinder this feeling
I harbor to entice

The restless excitement
Perils of indecision
Trapped beneath the layers
Together forming my prison

Hidden by walls of words
Bound by bars of sight
All that come to life
When concealed by the night

I die to speak
To finally reach out
To let her know
I can't do without

These secrets of sort
I must keep to me
For those who don't know
That's all that they see
