    Love that is not openly expressed
    Will forever be unfolded
    In the world and mind it stays.

    There is fear that your love
    Will chase them away
    Take the chance.......:court:

    Yes pain you feel
    when loves is unfullfilled
    But you don’t have them,

    Times have changed
    If you don’t tell the one
    Then you are wasting energy, love and pain.

    When you hear their voice,
    They walk in the room
    Just the thought and the mention of their name

    See them kiss someone else
    With lips you care to caress
    They share time or words with another

    It has perplexed thru time
    Many besides me and this rhyme
    Is to share what I know is a truth

    Boiling and a about to blow
    That is not you
    Pain takes the course
    Of running thru the heart again

    This can cause depress
    Ego low self esteem like stuff
    The inability to express is a mess

    Bring some anxiety flips
    Coupled with mood trip chips
    That can’t be cashed at the local love store.

    The object of love is often a friend
    Or someone whom you just met
    At work on the streets
    In a bar.. in the sheets

    You think love cheats! :whip:
    Is it fairy tale dreams that make

    This thing seem
    Like it should work
    Everytime it comes up?

    Have I ever suffered this road?
    Yes I have I have been been told
    I am not the apple of your eye

    What happens then is a inventory begins
    Thinking something must be wrong

    It was love that has opened this way
    Its awkward of course
    To reveal you’re the sourse
    Of the flowers the gifts and a ring

    For rejection can be
    a crushing blow to me
    So I live forever with my heart
    Tied to a string.

    Yes, unrequited love is a vicious beast! And when you're too afraid to even speak it out loud, it's a daily living hell!

    Thank You Sister sarcasm4eva

    I expressed it. In the past.
    I saw it expressed.
    It comes sometimes after the break up.
    One may realize they really do want.
    To be with the one they lost / or let go.
    So there is no special time.

    Love once had, but is now lost.
    Is no different from love never had.
    They hold the same cost.

    Pain / Heartache and some Tears..​


    I think this is where they get the saying.

    p.s. Kleenex sales are going up.. I need a few for some reason or another.​

    Sister cherryblossom
    Thank You for your insight and the word for this dilemma.

    Unrequited.
    I can't seem to quit it. Good word
    It's not the fear I think.
    But the chance one has to face.
    It was all a dream.
    But it feels so good.

    Why give it up?
    Channel it into something or someone else.
    What it does prove is you still have capacity.
    That is the key. Capacity to love.

    Please give me any keys found to the closet.
    Where I hold all my skeletons.
    Don't open the door.
    I would have to spend time and dance with each one
    I have an appointment I am trying to make.

    Besides they manage to kick open the door :whip:
    Dance all around the room
    Everytime that song comes on the radio. :peace:

    Well I pick it up.
    Brush some of the dirt off.
    Look around and place it back on the table.

    Full price! " Love Special.. " One broken heart.

    Needs mending.

    Hodee Hodee - Perhaps Fate wants us to meet a few wrong people before we meet the one that's right so that when we finally meet that person we will know how to be grateful. So don't frown, even when you're sad because you never know who is falling in love with your smile. No man or woman is worth your tears, and the one who is, won't make you cry. Write on poet.

    so sad...

    ...the things we go thru...trying to find that one SPECIAL LOVE...the right one for us...only to face REJECTION, again and again...'til we no longer want to spend our time exploring the possibility of love. but don't give up. there's always that next door to open...the next corner to look around...the next smile that catches your eye. NOT EVERYONE WILL MAKE YOU CRY. 'til that day, push forward.

    the river floweth.

    No bones about it, when the one that you just know is right for you, isn't, it's gonna hurt. And going down that unpredictable road again, takes courage, but it is worth it, to find that special someone. Heartfelt write poet.
