Shadows of an empty heart 

seem to suffocate in the presence of happiness, 

A happiness that will overpower the weakening sadness...

it's so familiar, yet so new. 

Beauty in its best form forbidden to escape my heart, 

but slowly the barier collapses, leaving only one thing left to say. 

I want to speak the long awaited words; 

but this phrase stays frozen in place; 

the forbidden words go about unspoken... 

and this emotion remaining fixed in its place..

always there, just unspoken.
