Secret Love

I have loved you
 from the moment you called my name.
Thinking out loud 
that it was meant for me.
Pain stifled my sobs,
echoed  through the abyss of my soul
wanting to reach and touch you
wake you up from slumber.
What will become of my tears?
Until when
 will your heart be deaf?
 So engraved in my bones
where no one will ever see.
This I have to hde
until the sun will set on me.


  1. Lovely words topped by a great last line.

  2. The poem is lovely with tone and cadence matching its content. I wonder if my life would have been better if I could keep that kind of secret?

  3. Unrequited love is the hardest love of all. I think we have all experienced it even if we will not admit it. But thankfully we move on, or at least most all of us do, usually to find someone who loves us in return. Yup, I have always found that my pets love me so much more than any human ever will. Okay, just kidding, well maybe not.

    I have to say though that when my two year old granddaughter ran up to me and after I picked her up, she hugged me so tightly that I just felt so much love for this little girl and I felt so protective of her. It was such a strong feeling and one that I seem to have only felt for my children and grandchildren. Yes, I love my husband and other people but it never seems to be the same as with my children. And I know that they may never love me in quite the same way but it does not matter. My love for them grows stronger each minute. I think that is why losing a child is the worst thing in the world. And then losing one's mom is the next. Life is full of unrequited love but it is also filled with so much more love.

    I think your poem describes the feelings so well of how one feels when one is always around someone they love but they know will never love them. Such a sadness one must feel and to feel it forever is truly even sadder. I just feel like I want to give them person a big hug and tell them that everything will be all right.

    Thanks for sharing such thoughts about one's secret love for another for this weeks Theme Thursday. May your weekend be filled with lots of love from those around you and maybe you will find you have a person who secretly loves you.

    God bless.
