Random Poem:

My Secret

I have a secret that I have to confess.
I can tell everyone in the world except you.
Ain’t that a mess?
It’s hard to tell the truth about how I feel.
Yet, everyone else says it shows.
But it’s so hard to unleash a beast that seems so unreal.
My feelings for you change vigorously from time to time.
You can call it an emotional roller coaster.
It always taunts my mind.
I think it’s funny for you to adore someone like me.
I never thought someone could love me so much.
How could that be?
When you told me how you felt I thought it was a reproduction of a fake line.
But through the country curves of your annunciation I knew you were genuine.
Some how I knew that our hearts had intertwined.
The secret is no secret at all really it is just hard to say clearly or do.
It takes a lot to fix my mouth and to say…
I love you.
