Unspeakable

Unspeakable

A Poem by Preeti
"

My heart seals my lips, refusing to let them destroy the walls it has set up for itself.

"

 

Hey boy

I can't say that I love you

for then my heart would be yours

for you to poison, for you to adore

for you to discard onto the floor.

My eyes would search for you

in the largest of crowds

Why waste my eyes on you?

I can't say that I love you

I would lay your place at dinner

hoping you would appear at the door

and every night would become a fiasco

I’d finish my tea and wish there was more.

 

Look at me boy

I can't say that I love you

You do not appeal to my mind, no

You are stubborn and firm

You rub my edges and ruin my thorns

You make me feel lonely

in the grandest of parties

You throw me into turmoil

and I become forlorn.

Keep your distance, boy

I can't say that I love you

for then my soul would be yours

for you to wear on your coat

like a crest of arms for others to note.

 

I am me, that I can be sure

and you are you, that must be true

You and me can never be one

You must know

for then you will be me

and I will be you

I want to avoid the misty days

When we will stand in the rain

Watch the petals fall from the rose

Feel the wind strike our souls

and wonder if what we were

ended with what we became.

No, boy, I cannot have that

My joy is mine; my sorrow is mine

You can have only my thoughts

My heart is mine, my spirit is mine

and I'll let you keep yours

So to keep my world from turning blue

I won't say that I love you.

I like this. It's got a real defiant tone and definitely speaks out for all the independent women out there who don't want to be brought down by a man. Great work! You lost rhyming a little bit here and there, which made the flow a little rough. But I really love the concept of this! Keep writing!

This is absolutely beautiful. There's tons of women that could relate to this poem which, in my book, is really what matters most. Keep it up for sure.
