Here are my thoughts;
Put down to paper,

Here are my memories;
Written in stone,

Here are the words;
I left unspoken,

Here are the feelings;
That I left alone.

You've always managed;
To steal my stare,

You've always managed;
To make me smile,

You've always managed;
To look so beautiful,

You've always managed;
To seem versatile.

You've never hurt me;
With harsh words,

You've never hurt me;
With a broken truth,

You've never hurt me;
With sticks or stones,

You've never hurt me;
Throughout our youth.

We've always been friends;
Despite the rumors,

We've always been friends;
Despite the years,

We've always been friends;
Despite the lies,

We've always been friends;
Despite the tears.

We always see each other;
Yet, we don't speak our true feelings,

We always see each other;
Yet, the mystery's never broken,

We always see each other;
Yet, our thoughts are withheld,

We always see each other;
Yet, these words are unspoken...?

    This is lovely. I can think of no greater loss than love withheld out of fear. Well, maybe I could, but the line seemed so poetic.... ;-) Thanks for your help in the chat room this morning James. There's a whole 'nother dimension to PoetrySoup now to be explored.
