I put down my feelings

With paper and pen

Too scared and confused to speak

I wait for the moment

When all will be right

And my heart is not so weak

Don't you see it in my eyes? Can't you feel it in my touch?

Won't you see through my disguise? Am I asking too much?


I listen for hours

To family and friends

Who say I am much too unkind

But they couldn't know

They couldn't see

That it's all suppressed in my mind

Can't you feel it in my touch? Don't you see it in my eyes?

Am I asking too much? Won't you see through my disguise?


Sometimes I remember

I mostly forget

To tell people just how I feel

Mostly in anger

But sometimes in tears

The feelings begin to unreel

I wish you'd see it in my eyes I wish you'd feel it in my touch

I wish you'd see through my disguise Could I be asking too much?


I wish I could tell you

My innermost thoughts

That I put down with paper and pen

Until I can share them

And open my heart

I'll probably cry once again

Awww, such an emotional write and yes it all begins with "paper and pen"....

Be always safe,
Reviewed by Felix Perry
Poets and writers in general for the most part tend to be tender hearted and often sensitive, we cannot express orally what we can commit to paper so easily. You have written from your heart and soul in this write and it shows. Sad theme but so well done.
