Bursting The Hearts Seams - Poem by Jennifer Ottinger

It's wasting time
Precious moments
Breathes of humanity
Keeping the secret
That hasn't been so secret
How obvious I've been
The feelings I have
Rejection around the corner
Hopefully acceptance
The secret can't be kept anymore
Life is too short
I can't keep it in
I gotta say it
The words tease my lips
My heart aches when I deny it
It could be all wrong
Or this might be all I hoped for
Fear of falling
Hope of acceptance
Harmless banter
Innocent looks
I have to tell you
I'm crushing on you
Lying to myself
Not taking the chance
This may just be a dream
Maybe I'll get over it
But no more lying

Poet's Notes about The Poem

It's a confession I hope the one person will get. Writing this allowed me a little peace from the crazy thoughts.
