You Taught Me How To Feel

You Taught Me How To Feel

A Poem by Darian Justine

I keep things locked up inside

held in my heart, never to be let go

I don't say half of the things I'm thinking

there's so much I'm afraid for you to know


Like all of the things I've been through

the lies echoing through my mind

the images of the past as they race on

the moments I would love to leave behind


The life that I have lived so far

it's been far from easy, you see

maybe that's why I'm so afraid

to open my mouth, open up, be me


But here, you've got me laughing

and for once the sound is real

you've got me telling you all my secrets

all my fears, and being real


I don't want to feel myself pull away

because I think I do need to trust you

give you my fragile heart that you could break

and trust that you're not going to


I need to give you my everything

my heart, my soul, my all

let you wrap me up in your arms

and pull me down to take the fall


my heart is pounding against your hand

as you lift me up, hold me high

you give me a reason to be free

spread my wings, and fly


It truly has not been long

but you've changed me a great deal

You taught me how to let love in

you taught me how to feel.

This reminds me a lot of me when I first met my fiance. I had always been the kind of person who kept my feelings hidden inside but for some strange reason, when I met him, I told him everything, as if I had known him for ages... Anyway, enough about me, this is a perfect poem; another one added to my favourites :D
