Love in silence---

Love in Silence

Entrapped in a dangerous love affair—

Alone, with my thoughts and feelings I live—harboring

A million words- a million gestures—

Countless moments, imagining us as if; when not.

My heart you have— and yet you do not know for in your presence I cannot speak of my heart’s desire. And this, the time when I feel most beautiful—most alive.

I know not how to give when I’ve never given—or how to break down walls I've built so high, so strong when I’m so weak—therefore my love you cannot see.

In silence, torture is routine in the battles of questions with no answers:

How do I begin to tell you that I know no safer place than beside you—when I know not how you feel—?

How do I begin to explain that you have become my world; an option found nowhere else—when I know not how you feel—?

So many ifs and maybes that know nothing but doubt—and yet they feed it to my brain; while my heart refuses to consume such toxins—because he knows best.

Meanwhile, I'm running and yet I get nowhere—because you are my final destination, and so around and around I run and every road I take leads back to you—and yet I cannot confess so that you know.

In every waking moment, thoughts of you fill my mind just as beautiful as they are crazy. When the night comes, my eyes remain closed—while my heart is wide open hoping you’d visit in a dream but in silence my heart loves—while in darkness I live without your love.

Confess to her and live life as two joined together! Life is too short to keep love hidden!

This was beautiful! And I agree with Sport. If you tell her how you feel, you never know! "Hearts are often broken by words left unspoken." ;) Best of luck to you Tonio!
