Sitting In Silence


I sit silently, watching him,
I feel like I'm going out on a limb,
Careful not to fall from this tree,
For my mind will not let me be,

I am very stressed,
And insanely obsessed,
I want to tell him how I feel,
Hopefully this wound wil heal,

I want him to know,
My actions may show,
I think I love him,
But my chances are slim,

At this moment, I want to show him,
Even if the light shining on us is dim,
I want to kiss him powerfully,
And hold him unconditionally,

If he knew, this would be easier,

I can't help from wondering,
I keep on pondering,
The idea doesn't help the pain,
It only makes me strain,

I'll sit in silence,
Is this considered defiance,
To my heart,
From which I am unable to part,

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
