It's Good It Didn't Show


You thought about it for a while
You weren't sure if you should
The more you thought about it
The more you thought you could

He was someone special
You didn't want to lose
Now it was decision time
So now you had to chose

The more you thought about it
The more you felt you shouldn't
The longer the thoughts filled your head
You were convinced now you couldn't

It's good you never said a word
It's good he didn't know
It's good the love you felt inside
Was love you didn't let show

    It sounds like restraint is a virtue in this one. Sometimes that's true love, to do the right thing. I like your rhyming cadence. (Report) Reply

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.
