Never Can Tell
By: Amy M. Kennedy

Never can tell you just how I feel
Even though my love is so very real
Never can I say all that I want to
Society dictates that I’m not to feel this way for you

Then there is our friendship that most certainly would end
If you knew the truth, you away I would send
You mean more to me than you will ever know
More to me than I can ever show

What hurts the most is I think you feel the same
I promise I am not trying to play some sort of game
Even though I think you want me too
I know you’ll never tell me, know this to be true

Why? Because no one would understand or approve
And it’s apparent to me that those things are important to you
So, I stay in silence out of my fear
Never the words “I love you” from me will you hear

Conflicted feelings rule my soul and heart
The pain and confusion is about to tear me apart
I have come close so many times to having my feelings be revealed
But then I have second thoughts, and my lips become sealed

So this love that burns inside
Will stay within me and hide
Don’t worry, I won’t ever say out loud…the things I feel
But still my love remains forever deep, true, and real.

 ~Live today as though it were your last but prepare for tomorrow as though it were here~

Amy* Oh how well you capture the feelings...I've ended many "could be's" with honesty that was before it's time but then again there were other times that without the chance I may not have known...damned if you do and damned if you don't sometimes....very excellent writing, thank you for sharing.

 Hold me for yesterday
Kiss me for tomorrow
But love me for today.

I can feel the torment it took to write these words on a page.
If it is from life experience it certainly reveals a very tender soul.
I've been in this situation way too many times.
It does get easier with time to (maybe not forget)but bury those feelings.
Although they may never truly leave you.
Wishing you all the best in life and love.

Sometimes we have to listen to our heads and not our hearts. It's never easy though. Great poem, Amy!

amy-girl this is excellent...your writing shows more and more maturity and strength with each poem.
i love seeing that...
as for advice(did you ask) LOL

you know me...ever the romantic...
i lead with my heart everyrtime...fall on my face well too LOL
but i'll do it every time...
society? other people's opinion?
not even a consideration when 2 people love each other...thats my story and Im sticking to it (SMILE)
love ya girl.

 Well the sun sets gently on your shoulders
And it makes me want to touch you there.
And the light in your eyes makes me feel
Like there's something much better out there
Something kind...
And I know someday I might be looking around
Trying to find some purpose
Well purpose it can't be that hard to find
As long as I've got the wind...
The wind and your love to carry me.
