Burning with Love


When I come close,
And talk to you,
My heart leaps.

But the thing is,
you will never know,
and if you will,
I will deny
And I will keep it secret.

But why?

Don't wanna loose you as a friend
Wanna have you the whole life span
Go with you to paradise
To the immortal land.

I want to tell you what I feel.
This time I love you for real.
I will gladly spend my life with you.
But you will never know,
I will try at least to hide,
My feelings for you,
Which will hopefully not show.

Jealosy kills me,
But I will keep strong.
Not to show
Or else things'll go wrong.

    Hmm you have done well to express your love in this for one to whom you cannot convey those feelings to. The turmoil within comes through while the passion rises more and more each day. The resolution held though does not sway one from ensuring that the secret is kept, and whatever it takes, it will be held hidden within the aching heart. Well worded, well expressed with a good flow and rhythmn. What I also loved about this is that it showed two lots of images of a love between two friends, male and female, and again, between two of the same. Interesting.
    Thanks for sharing and many blessings to you (Report) Reply
