Secret Love Comments

Rating: 3.2

Not one kind look....one friendly word!
Wilt thou in chilling silence sit;
Nor through the social hour afford
One cheering smile, or beam of wit?

................love should never be kept secret....cause the one you love may have the same feelings for you....if kept secret and love was never embraced....then it would be a tragedy...

Hmm. Sounds like he bonked her then left her. Nasty business, and not very empowering. It may even rank with teenage angst.

A poem carried forward from 400 years ago. What a place the world must have been for women in those far off days. No matter how they felt, they could not utter a word. When love was thrust upon them, they more or less had to accept providing Papa gave his consent. Yet she expresses herself with a gentle humour and a charming turn of phrase. I hope you lady poets are reading out there. Let's have no more of this Hey Lad. Do you want a girl frend

Unbridled passion thwarted by ambition; in this modern age-the roles are inverted. Would a man be brave enough to share his secret love?

Excellent poetry, the lamentation of a scorned lover, scorned for a career not another woman, the cruelest blow of all. The pleading of a lover for a bit of attention, and being completely overlooked. Amelie Opie was an excellent poetess.

Thank you for sharing this awesome write - it's inspired me to add my own ending to the story: And aught of life I dare to define as envy’s suffocating fumes, conspiracy that’s crossed the line to pave the path to many tombs… But I am fine and choose to be to breathe in the air of the truth… To love and live means to be free and swap weary lines for eternal youth…

Beautifully written poem about a lady's deep love for his counter part's success to fame and the sacrifice she is ready to undergo! This is the mark of real love in life!

Delightful! Beautiful! So sad! To how many dumb sufferers has Ms. Opie given voice? A poet's (or songwriter's, or playwright's) genius lies in giving expression to life's experience, so that the listener may say 'Yes! That is me! How well am I understood! ' Or possibly 'Oh! Now I comprehend how that person felt! ' I am humbled by this poem's insight, so eloquently expressed.
