Unsent


I have often wanted to write you

Just so you know

I am thinking about you

And I still love you so


It’s been awhile now

I’m afraid to let my feeling show

I am so afraid of silence

Or couldn’t bear to hear the word no


It’s hard to breathe at times

Wondering how you feel

Have you really forgotten about me

Or do you love me still


As my heart beats; it aches

Wondering what it would take

To have you back again


I can’t pretend, I miss you so

As long as you are in my memories

As long as I continue to breathe

I won’t be able to let us go


Funny this letter will never be sent

I guess it’s just my way to vent

I great piece on longing. It reminds me a bit of my piece "A Letter." This has a depth of emotion in it. But the last lines have a kick, too!

the wind of love will carry its scent..
and the breath of ur love will catch the air,
and thats when life shall be at its best and fair..

Memory is the last thing to let something go. There isn't anything wrong in reliving old adventures for lack of a better word. We've all been there, done that. You're completely "normal".

Aristocrat said...

Hello my dear Shy. I can address you by that, can I?

A very emotive poem, reminds me of those times of longing for my ex, or perhaps it's just a yearning to be loved again on my part.

Perhaps all of us go through this phase, some once, some more than once, perhaps twice, thrice or even more. How many of us have letters that were never ever sent, lying in the depths of our drawers...

Memories can destroy one. I know this to be a truth. For me anyway. And alex. I am not "normal" haha

Aristocrat, you can always speak your mind with me.

Interesting. Maybe it is the yearning to be loved again ha. I like the way you put that. Gave me something to think about. I also like the little poem me.. added. That is great.

Thank you for coming by.

WOW what an awesome little poem. Makes me smile.. Thank you for such sweet words this morning.

Aristocrat said...

Wow, I didn't catch that little nugget of gem hiding with gems. Me sure writes a good one! Somehow, it reminds me of Romantic poetry, and a little bit of... Now let me search for the poem...Give me a while eh..;)

Sudeep said...

The last lines were so touching

Me.. said...

heyy Aristocrat and Shy..

thanx for the generosity with ur praise for lil set of words here.. but the applause sure goes to Shy for having triggered some long lost feelings lost in deep corners of the heart..

not just such letters, but in love there are also a lot of words that we dont really say, a lot of feelings we dont really express.. for the sake of sanctity of love.. sometimes diggin back into such memories.. its sweet and its tangy..

You are so welcome. Sometimes little words mean a lot if one really pay attention. I think you express yourself so well here. And it seems you know me very well ha. Oh wise one aloha to you always.

It may be true that memories can destroy one, but in your case that phase of your life is in the process of ending. The Second Lady has taken you under her wing whether you like it or not. From about September - October, she is in the process of giving you a far from "normal" life.

Alex said...

It is true that you have the freedom to do what you want, but if The Second Lady takes an interest in you, you will find that some of the "zing" has gone in doing your own "thing".

Alex said...

The magic place seems to be OK now.

Yes, it may be ending. If I will give up and allow it ha. I can be pretty hardheaded at times. Hummm "a far from normal life?" ok we shall see.

shyloh *hugs* "Unsent". It is like I have written those same letters one thousand times. Very moving, the private thoughts, the feelings that won't subside. Very beautiful those heartstrings that refuse the break...

I guess I better visit you more often to get you here huh ha. Good to see you. I guess everyone has unsent letters and old memories that linger.


aloha

grumblefish said...

I don't know about these sentiments being "unsent". I think you send them, piece by piece, in a million ways, maybe not by mail.
It's how you are- nothing to be apologetic
about.

Blue Athena said...

Nice poem!

We've all written words we never sent across. Wonder if that has helped the cause though. I too have a few that're still with me. Unsent. :)
