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
desired
loved
cherished
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
