Secret Admirer

Form: Free Verse

You say you love me
but have never seen my face
or heard my voice
yet you tell me my words make you feel
but I’m just a poet
writing my thoughts
sharing my imagination on the page
and I’m honoured you feel what I say
if my words give you a sense of passion
that’s cool
enjoy them
take your fill in your pleasure
but I don’t know what to say to you
how to address your feelings
without causing you pain
for my heart is already given
to the one I love
but the poet will continue to
give his words to the page
and I hope you enjoy them

  1. Though I fall in love with a writer’s prose I never become emotionally attached enough to fall in love with someone i may never meet in person.

    1. I fell in love with Poe as a teenager, if that counts. Even now when the question who would you have lunch with it’s Poe, more to explore the poetic genius mind than love though
