All the Things I Never Told You

All the things I never told you
Are all the things I never will

All the kisses I never gave you
Lie dormant, unfeeling, still  

All the dreams that stayed inside me
Plans of how your heart I’d win

Are the dreams that haunt me ever
As I sit here and grieve my sin

All the fantasies I shared not
For they'd surely drive you wild

Are all the fantasies that burn me
For by you I’ve been reviled

All the love that I kept bottled
In my heart tight and secure

Is the love that rots away, dear
For this dying, there is no cure

My love, it is far too late now
To tell you how much you mean

For in your arms there is another
Whom you named your beauty queen

Still I sit here and I wonder
Think of all I should have said

Afraid I was, afraid and timid
To invite you to my bed

Yes, I could have warmed and loved you
Yes, I could have made you my king

Now I watch in abject sorrow
As your love makes her heart sing

Eileen Manassian Ghali

    Hey, girlfriend, when next you fancy a hunk read your "Give in to me" and go in for the kill. I sure plan on doing that - hahahaha. Lovely poetry, my sweet friend. Licia :-)

    No, foolish girl!! There are some useful tips in that poem on how to net the bugger of your choice and it certainly doesn't include reading. I'm off to practice a couple of moves from the Queen of Passion herself (wink, wink). Enjoy your weekend, my friend. Licia :-)

    What a sad but beautiful write my dear Miss Boop! You write this type of poetry so well. Your students should learn a lot from you if they listen and observe. Lotsa love, Kenny! xoxoxox

    Ghali Avatar Eileen Ghali Date: 10/5/2013 5:49:00 PM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    Well, so far many of the have told me that they love writing now whereas they didn't before. That is always very rewarding indeed. Thank you, Kenny. Your posts are always uplifting. Hugs

    btw, that was cool what you interpreted in my chocolate poem. I promise you sex was not even on my mind as I wrote it but hey, it does work, when i think of it!! And I definitely was using sexual language a bit to make it spicy!!

    Ghali Avatar Eileen Ghali Date: 10/5/2013 5:48:00 PM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    Yes, you did definitely use words to make it spicy, Andrea....Don't you deny it! ;)

    Such a sad one. The sad tale of love we cannot have!! Which contest is this of Anne's that the guys beneath are discussing? I will have to check that out.

    Ghali Avatar Eileen Ghali Date: 10/5/2013 5:47:00 PM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    A lyric contest, but...too late to enter. Still would be good to read the poems that made it there. Thanks for stopping by.........
  1. Date: 10/4/2013 5:13:00 PM

    I agree with Craig this would have made an excellent entry into Anne's contest.

    Well, wish I had known....I've gone to contest shy mode again.... :( Oh well.....such is life. Thanks for the post.

    Missed oppotunities my little Desert Orchid are the ones we remember the longest. Soulful write with smooth flow. Take care, Richard

    Thanks, Richard...Yes, missed opportunities do have a way of haunting us....Glad to have your visit.

    Synchronicity is the key that opens the door that leads to a successful relationship! If we miss it, what remains is regret! Wonderful poem though that could teach some valuable lessons! Have enjoyed it as a creation!

    Thank you, Demetrios....Yes, of course, there is truth in what you say...I appreciate the visit and the wisdom that you share with me. :)

    Wow. I feel this. I've been through it and I'm sorry. Great write, my friend. Love, Juli-Michelle

    Thanks for reading and commenting, Juli...It is lovely when a reader is able to connect and feel the words as though they were his/her own. Thank you for that comment.

    I agree with Craig.........this sounds like it should be put to wonderful music!! Lovely, sad lyrics!! Nicely done, Eileen !

    Ghali Avatar Eileen Ghali Date: 10/5/2013 5:42:00 PM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    Thanks ever so much, Carrie. I don't often get a visit from you. This is precious! :)
  1. Date: 10/4/2013 9:23:00 AM

    Eileen, love the flow and the beat! Just a suggestion--change the form to lyric and--never mind--darn, this would have been great for the song lyrics contest but it filled up already!

    Ghali Avatar Eileen Ghali Date: 10/4/2013 12:04:00 PM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    Craig, I didn't know there was such a thing. I will surely change it to lyric, but please tell me what needs to be fixed so I will change it. It still can be a good poem to keep for later. Thanks every so much for your advice. Feel free to help whenever you see the need. I appreciate it. :)
