Afraid To Show Love

Maybe I am different
From other men you've known
But what I feel inside
I have never shown

You see, I've always been told
That what a men feels inside
He should never expose
Especially if it's love
That's something you must hide

I was told if you let love show
It could make you vulnerable and weak
And that men like that
Are not what women seek

But yet I hear women say
Men should let their feelings show
I think about what I hear
But yet, I still don't know

I don't want anyone to think I'm weak
Or that I can be taken advantage of
That's what I think would happen
If I openly showed my love

This is something I must work through
I've been this way since I was young
Thinking back maybe that's the reason
A woman's heart I've never won

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
