Unsaid

by NivedaJames22


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,

Hauntingly.

~

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.

Hello,

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.
Glows
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.

Grows
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
Emivanz
