Keeping It Kept Unofficial - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Keeping it kept unofficial,
To protect a confidence...
Makes no sense when there is pain,
Remaining inside and contained...
By one in need but feels a shame,
Eventually creates heartbreak...
Felt by those knowing too late,
Showing another appreciation...
Is all that it takes to make one who gives,
Come to realize a love...
Few expect one neglected wishes,
To receive sincerely to fulfill a need.
But kept from others to pretend and deceive.
Because officially people await for announcements...
For a need for love to be believed.
