Words Left Unsaid...

Smiling to these unfamiliar faces
Never showing signs or traces 
Of how she truly feels inside
The girl whose feelings she’ll always hide

Barriers she built so long ago
Have yet to be touched, for no one can know
To try and open up seems such a difficult feat
So she’ll keep her heart and mind discrete

She longs to scream and let others know
How she feels like her life has reached a plateau
She’s yearning for love, for something more
But feelings on her sleeve, she’s never wore

Vulnerability is the scariest word she could hear
For being loved and left is by far her worst fear
People come and go, but the ones who stay
Are the very ones she tries to push away

She finds comfort in being simplistic
Her views on the world are disturbingly realistic
She understands people and how they can be
So she chooses to live her life privately

Regardless of emotions she chooses to show
And through her actions and motives people try to construe
Yet, when night falls and she rests her head
She doesn’t long for the world, just for words left unsaid

    You reached to the depths both in your writing and the readers soul. Wonderfully written! I am sure most of us (the readers) can relate. I love the flow and the last stanza wraps eveything up so neatly. Sad, yet beautiful. Smiles from Lolita
