Pt.1 Silent Love - Poem by Logan Rheinst

With each day that passes
The question begs answer
This unspoken love
Will it be my cancer?

To speak could be fatal
To not, leaves me bleeding
I think on this deeply
As my shell, it is fleeting.

I try to be tough
I try to be strong
But you see through my fake skin
and know something’s wrong.

You press and you press,
For an answer from me
I say 'nothing's wrong,
won't you just let me be? '

I'm slowly worn down
To my soul's very center
You're so very close now
I'm at the brink of forever.

Do I risk all we have,
and pour all my heart out
Will you reply in turn,
and tell me how you've felt?

Over and over
My heart has been mended
If it bleeds one more time
My life will be ended.

I won't risk it all
There's to much at stake here
My silent love dies,
and it's only remembered.

It rages inside me
Begging to be let out
I quell it one last time,
and slowly it fades out.

My soul has been emptied
I have nothing left now
My hopes and my dreams,
are ravaged and burned out.

My fantasty broken,
I lay it before me
I dig it's shallow grave,
then bury it completly.
