About the Poem

I was sitting late one night trying to sort out the feelings that I had stared having about a fairly new relationship that I'm in, trying to figure out where the whole thing stands. As I am now staring to experience feelings deep inside my heart - is he also?

The relationship seems so new, but I know what I am feeling inside is love for him. Wanting to be with him and wanting to know how he feels and where this will go.

I Wish I Knew

I wish I knew
I wish I could see
If I mean to you
What you mean to me
My feelings I keep locked so deep inside
In fear if I tell them you'll run far and hide
I want to feel you and hold you so close
To let you know it's you I need most
I want to know how you feel
And yet I can't see
If I mean to you
What you mean to me

Wow, this poem really struck home with me. Right now I'm an exchange student from the US living in holland, there's this girl tht I've fallen in love with and the line "My feelings I keep locked so deep inside In fear if I tell them you'll run far and hide" really describes a huge tug-of-war in my head right now..thanx
Your powerful yet simple words so describe my life as it is currently, wondering how this new relationship will turn. Thank you
wonderful, i really enjoyed your poem
this describe my marriage. although we have been together for quiet some time, things get routine and deep inside I can't help but to wonder if he still feels for me the way he did whem we first met. Oh, how I miss the way we were.
ur poem is really good juss a perfect one to let someone know if ya know what i mean
I found this poem terribly heart-rending as it expressed exactly the way I feel about my loved one, it's funny how we can never say the words that matter just because we are farid of getting hurt. I love him but I am farid to say "I love you" I know he loves me and yet he never says so, at the end of the day, both of us show our love in different ways but I still linger for the words and I still am insecure about my feelings because of that. It's such a waste of time and yet it would be such a risk to say the words aloud, I just wish I knew what to do.
so powerful, so true to heart, you are a poetic genius with true insight.
