Sometimes I feel a gnawing

Deep within my heart.

I wonder about all the things

That I had to say

But didn't.


Every word, every phrase

That should left me,

Stays deep within me still

Taunting me,



These words, they're like

Ghosts who stay

Near me even in the dark.

They burn me and ask

To be said aloud.


They make me think of

Past things gone,

Friends who've left,

Fun that's done.

All over now.


They deride me, calling me

A coward, a weakling,

One who can't speak out

What they

Want to say.


One day, I think I'll burst

And spew out those

Words that I never said

Those words

Left unsaid.

Hi. I was reading your poem, and I absolutely loved it. My favorite type of poem is the short, unhindered, and heartfelt ones everyone can relate to. I once made a poem similar to this, but more about insecurities. I love the style, and the meaning behind this poem. It spoke to me, and I'm sure it spoke, and will speak, to many others.

Thank you! (:

Hey emivanz here for a short review (or a long one idk)
This was such an amazing poem that I think we can all relate to. you wonderfully described the words we all mean to say, but never do.
This poem flowed really well. I could just hear each stanza roll off the tongue.
It was the perfect tone. I imagine this poem to be sort of airy, floaty sort of piece. One that is almost like the words you cant always get out, floating.

there were not a lot of these, (the poem was so well written.)
The only thing i didn't understand was the line, "Friends who've left ,fun" why was the word fun added in there.

overall this poem was an incredibly work, and i hope you write more!
your friend

Thanks for reviewing! :)
