Emotions Not Expressed

A pen lies upon my desk
waiting to be brought back
from its rest
waiting to fill the blank pages
of my notebook
with deep thoughts of
secrets, and feelings
and words that were never
waiting to pour out
the emotions that pulled through
and yet were never expressed

The author's comments:
I wrote this one day when I was feeling a lot of emotion bottled up inside me. I usually write to express my emotions but for some reason I hadn't written in a long time.

I like this. I can definately relate. I can always write what is inside but I just can't say it. Like the pen is my best friend that I can share all my secrets with but no one else.

I love this and I know how you feel. Sometimes I just feel so full of emotions but can't write a thing about them to save my life so I usually just simmer in my own juices until I come up with something, something good happens, or I explode. Thankfully I don't explode too often. Great job. ZERO
