Don't

Don't

A Poem by Li
"

A strong desire to be understood.

"
Don’t

Don’t tell me I am cold.

I don’t jump in the air when I see you

But that doesn’t mean I don’t care about you

I say less when I am around you

But darling, my heart revolves around you

Yes, I don’t tell all my secrets

But that doesn’t mean I don’t trust you

I am shy around you

But babe shouldn’t that say more about what I feel for you

I don’t want to go out tonight,

But I am not bored of you

I know I said wait

But I am not having second thoughts about you

You just overwhelm me

This is all too new for me

Like a baby learning to walk,

I am learning….slowly

So bear with me….

I mean to tell you so much, when I fail helplessly

But don’t,

Don’t say that I am cold

Don’t say that you’re lonely.

This is beautiful, Li.
I could hear the heart of the protagonist saying, "My quietness doesn't mean I don't love you, you just have to understand my personality."
This is what love is made up of. Understanding our companion, accepting them as who they are and never giving doubt a chance.

well written.

Thanks a lot Kesch!
True love can still be genuine & feel overwhelming -- even if it is meek, humble, and/or misunderstood in its expression.

Wow. I love that last refrain. "Don't say that I am cold. Don't say that you're lonely". Its easier to not care than to give your heart to someone, just to see them break it.

You're seeing from the other person's perspective and I like that. And like you said to some people .. read more
God, you put that feeling into words perfectly. I think the hardest thing to deal with is when someone you care for deeply mistakes your personal way of showing affection as something else, or your personality just doesn't click to their definition of "caring" despite your bravest attempts at showing just how much you care. Everyone is completely different, everyone has their way of showing care - in fact, everyone expresses each emotion differently - and to be forcibly misunderstood despite constant explanations and pleas to be heard can be completely disheartening. I heavily relate to the message in this poem and I hope that you find someone who has enough patience to learn your definition of care - you deserve to have someone TRY to understand how you feel and who you are, and there's nothing wrong with being different just because someone doesn't feel like you're "enough." You are enough, you are perfect the way you are, and at the very least, know that some random guy has experienced the same treatment and understands where you're coming from. Beautifully written, Li.
