\"either write something worth reading or do something worth writing. -Benjamin Franklin

\"If columbus would have turned back, no one would have blamed him. No one would have remembered him either.\"

\"If music be the food of love, play on.\"


My words and thoughts shall not be reclusive anymore,
Love will no longer stick on the tip of my tongue,
These words do not need to be shouted or sung,
Meirly said,
Perhaps it is only in my head.

These feelings must be birds, not caged,
If I don’t get some courage soon,
These thoughts will check into an eternal hotel,
Collecting dust,
Never able to bust,
Unlike the butterflies that fiddle in my stomach, when I see him.
Why can’t my words be like the butterflies and come out on a whim?

Rejection shouldn’t hold me back,
I must try, at least take a crack.
But every time I try to say,
My discouraging thoughts get in the way.

After it all I don’t say whats on my mind,
By now our hands could have been intertwined.

He gave me a goodbye letter that I will keep as a token,
As a memory of my first heart broken,
All because of my words unspoken.

Oh wow this was really powerful. Sometimes it the words that you said and sometimes its the words unsaid that hurt you.

I have no clue whatsoever . . . how to express how awesome sauce this poem is . . . so . . . ahem . . .  I'll just say "I pancakes it!"

(Here I use the word 'pancakes' as a replacement for the word 'love' because the world overuses the term.  :))

An amazing piece of writing! You really show the reader how the feeling works throughout the poem!

Forget about the people in your past theres a reason they didn't make it to your future.

Wow, this was really good!

My fear IS rejection, but you're right we just have to go for it b.c it might turn out to be the best thing that ever happened to us.

Keep it up :)
