You'll be a lawyer-
I'll be a writer. 
You'll probably make more money but-
At least we'll both be doing things we love.
And we'll live on a farm,
Just like you always wanted and...
I want to marry you-
I can't imagine myself with anyone else.
But you don't know that. 
We'd both laugh if I told you. 
So it's better left unsaid. 

I can see us staying up late...
Watching kiddie movies and eating chocolate ice cream. 
And having candle lit dates on our bedroom floor-
Taco Bell, of course. 
And on winter evenings, we'll curl up on the couch...
With hot chocolate...
As I read aloud to you-
From a book of my choice, of course. 
But you don't know this...
You'd think I was weird if I told you.
So it's better left unsaid. 

And one day we'll pick out a huge chair.
A chair for cuddling.
And when I'm sad-
You'll hold me in our chair...
And we'll both stay real quiet,
Taking each other in.
And eventually we'll start to talk-
Quiet murmurs at first...
And eventually we'll both be laughing like we do. 
But I can't ever tell you.
These things are just better left unsaid. 

And on late summer evenings,
As the sun is slowly sinking beyond the horizon-
We'll sit outside,
The two of us-
You'll play your guitar,
And I'll sing love songs.
And it will be perfect. 
And I'll wear your shirts to bed-
Just because. 
But we won't sleep.
We'll cuddle-
And laugh-
And tell corny jokes...
Until the sun rises. 
And then sleep all day...

But it's too perfect-
Too silly-
Too ignorant. 
And I can't tell you. 
So it's better left unsaid. 

And that's where our story ends...
Because I could never tell you.
And sometimes I wonder...
If maybe I told you...
If maybe you felt the same way...
So I wrote you this poem instead.


Honestly, I couldn't have put it any other way.
I mean every word.
But I'm still not sure about you reading this...

Um I can't remember if I wrote anything the first time I read this, so I apologize if I'm repeating myself in saying that this is beautiful. It's just touching all over again, so thank you for sharing this.

No... the person said it SHOULD be DD. Not that he'd make it be XD
But that would be so cool!!!
But the funny thing about this is... I wasn't even trying with this poem. I did it in like 10 minutes flat, didn't go back and read it, didn't edit it. Didn't fix anything. I just hoped he'd see it and that'd be the end of it.
So I went to bed and the next morning there were 80-some messages in my inbox.
And then it got worse and worse and I was like freaking the fuck out! XD
I didn't even know it was on the front page until that night, unfortunately. It'd been up all day!

Fantastic job on this poem! You've made me think a lot more about words and feelings! I'm very glad I read this!:D

The emotion here is so transparent. It's simple, but the words carry a weight that immediately strikes the emotional core. That, in itself, makes it beautiful. I know the feeling you're trying to portray and 'cause I've felt it myself. I say goodluck to you in everything!~

I get where you're coming from. I can't give you a happy ending (I'm not your a little angel or a time traveler). I hope your love does see this. I hope that your love reads it. If there's one thing that I know, it is that love is not in words, but in actions. Your love will understand.

I think this piece is decent. Although, I think your piece could be better if you focused on the "words left unsaid." Mainly because this engages the reader and makes the reader question what is actually better left unsaid. My two cents. Fly-gonz.

Aww.. :meow: I'd love to show this to my boyfriend, but he'll probably think it's a little cheesy -- especially at the "I'd marry you" part -- we're taking things slow, since this is my first relationship, but this is his third or fourth, but honestly, I'm ready for more than just a boyfriend/girlfriend thing. I'm (strangely,) more ready than I thought I'd be when I was younger.. :3
