Secretly Loving You

Secretly Loving You short poem

Photo by overgraeme

I was alone, I was empty,
My life was dull and lonely.
Then you came unexpectedly,
I could feel my heartbeats faster, then slowly.

You’re one of a kind,
When I see you, I’m out of my mind.
I know I don’t have the courage,
My mind says, “heart, please encourage”.

I don’t know what to do,
When you pass by and say “hello”.
Your eyes are smiling,
But my heart is throbbing.
Like a drum, it says “I know what you’re saying”,
I am slowly dying.

Days, weeks, months passed,
I am looking you from afar.
I can see and I can feel that you’re happy,
Holding someone else’s hands,
I should have been angry.
I know it’s crazy,
But I don’t have the right to envy.

I told myself, ‘it hurts you know’,
But I was sorry because I never told you so.
There was never an us,
There will never be an us..
I know it hurts me a lot, you love someone else,
And, I, I am just secretly loving you..

I take your hand, So soft and clean. Future scars will warp like a band, Those pure eyes that haven’t seen. My hands, rough and red, From blood of past victims. My sinful limb strikes your head, Then I say:

A lead goes nowhere, a ladder, a snake, bloody steps; a city mourns, while blackened walls of a house search its owner. Shadows of grainy straws move under the eyes. Scent of nails bites bronze silence. Sips of cold statements
