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 Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
