"Secret Admirer" Free Verse poem (217 words)
« on: July 11, 2018, 05:48:58 AM »
Never have I been the type to say what I feel
I just keep everything bottled up inside.
I found myself doing it again with you.

I've been trying to tell you so many times
But I don't want to risk losing it all.
In fact, I don't know if you'll ever know.
But that's okay too
Even though it's hurting me deep down inside
I choose not to show.

I don't know what it is
about you, that I like so much.
But you haunt my thoughts day and night.
I guess you can call me your "secret admirer"
Yes, The name fits just right.

When you're around,
I instantly forget everything.
I see no one, I hear no one
The only person visible to me, is you.

Maybe it is the way you smile when you look at me
The sweet way you laugh
The way you say my name when you speak to me
So differently than everyone
Or maybe just the fact that you're YOU

It will always be from a distance that I admire you.
Keeping my feelings to myself is what I will do
Since I can never have you
And you can never be mine.

But there's a question that will always linger...
Did you perhaps feel the same way?

PS: Let me know what you think
