And yet-I Wish I Could Let You Know

July 24, 2011
Feelings are locked inside of my heart
They long to break free
Long to boil to the surface and long to kiss the sun
But I cannot let them go
Cannot let them show
I’ve hidden my heart’s key at the ends of the earth
Now no one can hurt me
Now no one can break me
I am totally and completely independent.
And yet-
I wish I could let you know

About my feelings

Because than we could sit out late and watch sunsets…
Because than we could hold hands…
Because than we could let our destinies intertwine and let our souls roam the heavens together forever…
Because Then I could watch light dance on your cheek each morning,
And gaze at the moon shadows that caress your fore-head at night…
Because then I would be brave enough…strong enough….

To love

But they-my feelings-are locked away-
Forced to flit depressingly around inside a cage of raw emotions…
I’d un-lock my heart for you…

If I was strong enough to break the lock into pieces
If I was strong enough to retrieve the key
If I was strong enough to trust that you would not reject them
If I had that strength…I wouldn’t need to lock them away…
Things would be different, then.

Feelings are locked inside of my heart
They long to break free
Long to boil to the surface and long to kiss the sun
But I cannot let them go…

Someone could hurt me
Someone could break me
I would never be totally and completely independent.

And yet-
I wish I could let you know.
