Unspoken Words

As you open your mind, I listened to each word through my heart. These are my food for thoughts. You expect me to react, I resort to remain in silent. Does my silence convey my answers? Upbringing of a girl does not allow me to share the truth. From my childhood an unwritten teaching conveyed to hide feelings and not to share own thought. I know the suffering of my unspoken words. How can I share that every moment of truth with you, remains in my mind in rest part of the day? How can I make you believe that each breath I take, each word I think, each moment I enjoy, each dream I watch, arrives to me touching your soul? I wish you could see my mind, each space is filled with your invisible presence. Do you understand that my hands are tied? My feelings are surrounded with social taboo. Society will defame me, I am afraid. I can’t speak up my mind. You will not understand my moments of silence, that touches your feelings. And I remain with burnt of unspoken words of mine.

Thanks Caren for your comment. But to keep the unspoken words with one creates disturbances in thought process. God bless you.

"From my childhood an unwritten teaching conveyed to hide feelings and not to share own thought." - unspoken words sometimes are the best ones, the ones we keep to ourselves.
