If Only You Knew…

If only you knew how much I love you, would you look at me strange?
If you knew you hurt me would that have made you change?

If you knew how much I felt connected to the rhythm of your heart,
would you have consider that awkward or regarded it as a piece of art?

If only you knew that one day, awhile ago, I contemplated your last name,
would you still have been eager and ready to play this foolish game?

If you knew that I didn't want to take another breathe,
without you by my side, would you have stayed or kept to the left?

If only you knew that without your voice I couldn't mutter one word,
would you have performed a soliloquy so that I could be heard?

If you knew these things and how I have so much more to say,
would you take my hand and lead me along the way?

Poem of the Day

poet John Gay

Friendship, as love, is but a name,
Save in a concentrated flame;
And thus, in friendships, who depend
On more than one, find not one friend.

A hare who, in a civil way,
