Too Hard To Say - Poem by CDM Anderson
It's not right to just say what you gotta say at times..
Because when you do that, you don't realize
that that person may not feel the same,
So they disregard your true feelings and call you
It's hard to say that I love her,
But I do. I really do.
She disregarded my words, so it's just a vacuous
statement that holds no meaning to her.
There ain't no sunshine in our world.
The shine is supposed to come from both parties -
It sucks that the shine only comes from one side of the
I told her, 'I love you.'
And she said, 'Goodbye, Chris.'
She said it with such harmony.
Such grace, and
But even then, the kiss -
was too dry.
And that's all there was to it.
My response would've been vacuous, so I said zilch -
No bliss. No kiss.
I told her that I loved her once again..
And her piercing eyes stared deep into the abyss,
But she never said it....
