Secret Feeling That Can't be expressed



A secret feeling I can’t express,

Without expressing I can’t repress

To express it is really hard

While repressing it- I’ve become a bard.


Wanna express my love to her all the time

But it’s so hard to express even a single time.

Don’t know the way to vent my love

The only hope is God above.


There is no medium, no outlet

To call my love for a simple date,

Can’t say my love to my love,

Though she is gentle like a dove.


Social bounds- so hard to break

So many barriers- tough nut to crack

Circumstances- never went my way

Could see the hope just fading away


All because I have no right

For I’m disable, I have no might.

ok, mnay times we project our yearnings 'out there' so to speak to people we think we are not worthy of.
We do this because we are affriad of love or to be loved because we are affraid of the attachmants that break when we cling to it. Emotional attachments always break, when we become open within ourselves and have more feeling within, we attract that to us.
When we are needy and fearful we become attracted to those we may possibly never be able to have, it is what that type of energy draws to it self. The universal laws are as such; like attracts like.

You have a physical dissability but that is not what keeps you stagnant. It is the inner fear. When you decide to over come the lower emotions you will climb out of that place of self denial. You will have possibilities and then probabilities ^_^

This a very, very sweet poem by the way, but at the same time it is full of self doubt.
I am very pleased to meet you. and this a fine place to spread your wings. You can begin to add more aspiration to your thoughts as you write and in turn bring more of that to yoru self.

I would be happy to hear from you about your dissability, and elaborate on distant healing, I am not able to cure such things that are of karmic order but I do balance the energy centers and clear away the congestion from your outer astral and etheric vehicles.
my name is katie and welcome to booksie dynamic
have a wonderful day :)

This is for Anna Therese,

First of all sorry i deleted your comment by mistake. Since I'm new at booksie, i'm not familiar with all its feature so it happened that your as well as mine comment got deleted. :(

But I could fully understand the concern u expressed in your comment.From your comment it seems that u assume that my love knows about my feelings for her but its not like that. She doesn't know at all- nor could i express it to her. Thats what i meant in my first stanza. Hope i could explain my position to u but i'm too... I don't know what to say. I really can't at this open forum where every one could see/read. Hope u understand....Thanks once again for showing so much care for me.

air is an essential life ingredient and I visit after a comment you left at Katie's page.Whatever your 'disability' you certainly shout with high volumes of ability in this poem. If your 'unexpressable power' has channelled into you becoming a 'bard',then this 'power' has done the world a favour,it needs the song of your loving soul :)

Ah, so glad you invited me to read. I just read your Valentine poem. Then scrolled to this one. This was meant to be.

Your expressed your hurt feelings very well. So many can relate to barriers and not being able to communicate. Some find it easier to vent to strangers. It's more comfortable for no fear of being judged. If they do, we can just move on. With family or friends we have to live with the fact they know everyday. Making it difficult to face them.

Far as your disability, I have a passion for individuals with physical, developmental and mental disabilities. I worked many years with them. Some people make us feel as if people with disabilities have no right or might, as you stated,

I'm here to let you know, you are special, unique, and strong. I'm currently working on a rough draft to express just that. Also to try to break the barriers that are attached to the population.

Don't ever doubt yourself. You are perfect just the way you are!

If you are interested, I would like to converse with you through email. Or if there's anything I can do? I'm glad we met, thank you and God Bless.
