About the Poem

This poem is about a person who is in love with someone, but could never really show their true emotions. They had went out before, but it never really worked out. Now they are friends, but one of them wants to be something more. This is the only way they could express their feelings toward their loved one.

Many Unsaid Things

There were so many things I did not say
When I looked into your eyes
The things I think about each day
Would take you by surprise

The wonders of what we could share
Still powder in my mind
I wondered if I could tell you how much I cared
And I guess I ran out of time

Now your face is not stopping me
From telling you how I feel
Maybe this is the way it should be
So I'll try and keep it real

We have known each other for quite some time
And we're recently good friends

We were a couple for awhile
But we know that never really lasts
I always felt as if my heart was on trial
And now it's a thing of the past

I want that love we once shared again
If it was ever there
I know that I had loved you
But did you really care?

Sometimes I wish you would talk to me
About the things you feel
Then maybe someday I'll understand
How you've learned to deal

I've often wondered what it would be like
To feel your warm embrace
To kiss your soft sweet lips
Or have your touch upon my face

But now I am gone and I'll never know
How wonderful it would be
To have the sweetest love
That you would share with me

So many things I think about
You probably never knew
A lot of many unsaid things
That I have never told you.

Margie
I know how you feel. I was same touch with this beautiful poem. I was very attrative with a friend of mine, he out of U. S All that time he said we are good friend, but i was very hard to say to him, how much i feel about him. I am scare to be as a fool person by him. Yeah i am in love with him like crazy. We been sending email too much, but i am still scare to tell him how i feel when he was around, we did so much fun together, but I am scare to tell him that i am in love with him. lol Your peom is so beautiful, and it got in my thought. Keep up your good work!

THIS POEM TOUCJED ME IN A WAY THAT I DIDNT THINK WAS POSSIBLE. THOSE WORDS, THE FEELING I FELT WHILE I READ THEM. MY GOD IVE MADE SO MANY MISTAKES DUE TO MY LACK OF COURAGE. I SHOULDVE SAID WHAT WAS IN MY HEART. I SHOULDNT HAVE BEEN SO SCARED!
Missy

Tiffany
Girl I'm feelin you on the real. That is just what I needed to hear, because I'm going through the same thing. Keep on doing what you doing,because you doing it well.
jenny
That was beautiful! i feel the same way towards my ex boyfriend. he wants to be friends and fool around but i just cant do that.
Fiona
There's only one word to describe it. Wonderful. This is exactly what i feel now. I don't have the courage to go to him and say, " i love u".
Alicia
Your poem touched a chord so deep within myself I actually cried. It's amazing how a complete stranger wrote something so absolutely beautiful and how much it fit my situation. My ex and I were very much in love, or so I thought, until he crushed my heart. I will definately always remember that ultimately, it was a stranger who put my feelings into words. Thank you so much for allowing the rest of the world to view such beautiful poetry.
Lacy
Wow.. this poem is awesome. It explains exactly what I'm going through right now
Krystle
Thanks a lot for making me remember just how much I miss my ex. We were together for a year and stuff happened and we broke up, now I am with his friend and we are the best of friends but is very hard to be near him when we still have feelings for eachother. I miss him that I won't lie about, but your poem sorta put evreything I felt together. You did a great Job!
Jenese
The poem really explained the situation that I was in. It helped me to actually go up to him and tell him how I really felt.Many poems I've read are in the fantasy land but your poem was really down to earth and to the point. Keep writing them girl!
Maria
I really loved this poem. It tells how exactly I feel. I met this guy at college and we were friends. A year later we dated for 8 months, then we broke up for something that had happened. We are now good friends again, but I love him and would do anything to get him back. But I am waiting, hopefully time will tell!
Valerie
I love it because it explains the the little bind I am in.
Sarah

reann
that was good. that touched me too. you all have such good poems,but this one was really good
Sally
I really like this poem, it's the same way I feel about this guy Michael I've once dated. We're friends now but I still love him but we just parted, we've been having this on and off affair for the last 4yrs and the next 3 yrs we've been friends. But we still care for one another This poem really touched me a lot. Thanks
Miriah
This poem reminded me of my two closest friends that all of us share similiar things unaid to each other and don't explain things very well to each other on feelings, but I loved this one! Send me some of the others if possible.
