Secret Love

Secret Love

A Poem by Lauren Beth

Phone vibrates

Heart races
Wish I could answer
Yet relish the excuse not to
Is it him? I secretly hope
But tell myself I don’t
I take a peek
My knight in shining armor
For now undercover
Can I let go of everything I know?
All I’ve been trying to hold onto
For so long.
I need to release it
Can’t forever keep this secret
Trying to hide how we feel
We belong to others still
But this love is just too real
Anticipation of word from you
Consumed by nerves,
Hidden email and phone
Just want to let it all go
And run into your affirming arms
To forever stay and grow

A familiar senstion... the fearful longing for the forbidden fruit.. the thrill of the secret liaison... the rush of the one who makes the feelings flow...

Nicely written...

Love is one thing that cannot be hidden, it can always be seen through our eyes, somebody just needs to look deeper. Keeping it as a secret is really hard, it can only last for a while.
Great writing.

the forbidden always tastes the sweetest and has the most exciting ringtone~ ;)~

this a "modern piece" about current times. I remember a time before there were cell phones. We sent letters through the mail. You had longer to think and respond. It was good in a way, but bad in another way. I like the write. I have experienced this and know all these emotions well. You really captured the feel of it quite well. good job!

Oh my, what to say to this. The words flow so naturally but that longing seems so sadly desperate .. whether fact or fiction, this poem rings reality and the need to change direction. ' .. Consumed by nerves, ~ Hidden email and phone ~
Just want to let it all go ~ And run into your affirming arms ~ To forever stay and grow'

this is falling in love with love, very dangerous fruit, but lovely write.

I am curious if this is how my ex husband felt while he was having his affair. I have always wanted to ask him what it was like to sneak around, if it was the rush or anticipation of getting caught, I might actually have to ask him. Just remember, in your joy, there is someone else being hurt.

With Love,

This makes me wonder why we have secret love when it makes us feel this good, why not share it? Oh that's why people on the outside never understand it. This was a fun read and one of hope of true love. Nicely done.

I enjoy writing poetry, usually just what comes to me. I write for me, it's like just something that I need to get out. Whatever hits me at the moment I start jotting down, on sticky notes, napkins.... more..
