I said nothing - until

I said nothing - until

A Poem by Elemiah

It started so simply
It started so small
Perhaps it was
The moment we met
Maybe it happened later
In any case
It built up
And up
But I said nothing
Why ruin a friendship
By saying something
That would surely scare you away?
Yet it kept building
Until it was all released
By you –
With a single kiss
In a place
With a million faces
Then I became aware
Of you
Of myself
Of us
I wanted to tell you then
But I said nothing
Why ruin a friendship
Because of a crush?

So I stayed silent
Until you again
Made me aware
With a poem like this
Finally –
I spoke
Then I waited
Waited for you to respond
And you did
Then we were

I found myself with unnecessary feelings –
Our weekend together
When we were cuddling
And I realized
I had nothing to fear
Not now
Not ever
I love you
And forever

i like the way the story built up and how you managed to show the uncertainty in the character and how in the end he just stopped questioning and just went along with it and got his happily ever after. it is very simple and precise and light, just the way poems about love are meant to be. great job!

And when you say im jealous, im not... i feel like you're pushing me away from you to be with jester, you silly goose.

Aw, I love you too. Now I have to make you another poem!

I love this (and not just because it's about us) because of the way that you put such raw emotion into it, and the way that you use repetition to make it more powerful. It was amazing, keep writing babe!
