Christmas Wish #poetry #poem

Under the Mistletoe! XL

Photo by Local Nomad

 

I want to send you a Christmas card

to tell you all that you mean to me.

But i’m not allowed to do that

for fear it would be taken wrong.

 

I saw a gift on the store shelf

and thought it was perfect for you.

But i can’t give you any presents

for fear it would be taken wrong.

 

I want to kiss under the mistletoe

to feel you near, your lips on mine.

But i can never feel you, skin on skin.

No one must know how i feel.

 

Not even you.

Unfelt #poetry #poem

I keep feeling

What shouldn’t be felt.

I deny it

At every turn.

 

But there you are

In my happy place

Where smiles grow

And fear runs away.

 

I keep feeling

What shouldn’t be felt.

And I think you

Keep feeling it, too.

Something That Will Never Be #30in30 #make30 #poetry

 

Thanks to Elyria Fence for the photo

 

I’m glad you don’t read these words.

I’m glad you don’t know my heart.

The caught breath and fluttered beats

Would surely push you away.

 

Deep inside my locked-up self

Are thoughts of picket fences

And hand holding

And sweet whispers

And love.

 

If you knew, would you still stay?

If you knew, would we be friends?

It feels like an affair to me

A secret meeting

Hushed words.

 

I pray for you and her.

I pray your marriage will heal.

I pray, but my heart still yearns

For something that will never be.
