Afraid of Words


These thoughts fill my head
of memories I cannot keep.
The secrets that hide
tear me apart deep.

A simple smile
a total waste of time.
How words can change everything
just tell me I will be fine.

I want to hear
an apology, not a lie.
Will I ever hear it?
Or will you say goodbye?

The dreams I want
it makes my heart weak.
Tell me you are sorry
I'm afraid of the words you speak.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
