No Words

 

 

Can I love you from afar

Like a gift of falling star

A flippant, failing hoped wish

Of a heart still so foolish

 

How could you thus ever know

Feelings that are kept from show

No words do I true profess

For fear they will be useless

 

And what would it be I say

To explain feeling this way

How can I hope you would hear

If my words don’t reach your ear

 

Safer to just contemplate

Then speak the truth, seal my fate

If my words don’t make it so

How are you to ever know

    some words are best left unsaid, and the thought of things may be better than the reality if it were to ever come to fruitiion

    Wonderful words, Brad. But I guess sometimes people have to move beyond words and take a shot.

    What pain shall the heart bear, if the words cannot express love !! Sad

    Poignant piece, Brad. Better to have tried and found out it wasn’t meant to be than keeping those words inside.
