(read) my silence


heart thumps
but no one hears
now i stand struggling
between tact and spontaneity
candid truthfulness and careful discretion
secrecy and expression
love unspoken and love revealed

now written words are silent
a sweet escape from confrontation
a compromise for revelations i cannot shout
and like my heart’s thumping –
they are loud yet unheard
love un-spoken, love (almost) revealed
