Words of Love Unspoken

I closed my heart
Not to feel you
Or the love that welled
Inside just for you
And my eyes shut tight
Not to see you
To quell the desire
That I felt in your sight
Turned my face
So I could not want you
Your written words
Had touched me so
To hide the tears
Of heartache
The one's that so often fell
The many hours in silence
Alone without you
Sadness my only friend
And finally with resignation
I closed my mouth
not to whisper
The waiting words of love
I wished to tell ...

Poem by Dianne Dee ... ♥
Image - Muchacha de Espalda - Salvador Dali - 1925 (1904-1989)

Hello Dianne,
The painting by Salvador Dali and his poem is beautiful, sensitive, has everything to do with the image.
I also enjoyed learning to dance in the rain! Great!

A delicious full of melancholy poem to accompany a delicious way to such a beautiful image. Unmistakable Dalí. Besos.

dianne said...

Thank you dear Antonio for your very thoughtful comment ... yes I thought the beautiful Dali image was perfect for the sensitivity of my words.
Dancing in the rain is good but a little sunshine would be welcomed for a change.
A hug my friend.

dianne said...

Yes dear Hliza sometimes one has to close their heart, or try to in order to protect their feelings from a love that cannot be when that love is not returned. It does not stop the love inside, one can only hope that in time the feelings will pass.
Thank you for your kind words.
Hugs, Dianne.

There is such heartache in unrequited love but you expressed it so eloquently and beautiful, in a way that truly moved me.

The picture is a lovely work of art and it is a perfect companion to express the story of emotions ~

Great writing and post, Dianne :) ♥

Thank you dear Fiona for your very thoughtful comment of my poem and this post.

Yes, I thought the Dali painting was a perfect choice as there was a sadness about her demeanour that seemed to reflect my feelings.

xoxoxo ♡

dianne said...

Liebe Jasmin , ich danke Ihnen für Ihre klugen und schönen Kommentar. Ich bin so froh, dass Sie dieses Gedicht geliebt. Es ist aus meinem Herzen. Ja, es gibt zwei Seiten zu jeder Geschichte, und obwohl er ein guter und freundlicher Mann ist, ich weiß, dass er keinerlei Gefühle der Zuneigung für mich. Wenn er dieses Gedicht sehen, ich bin sicher, er würde nicht genehmigt wurden, ist er ein Privatmann und würde denken, dass ich mehr Vorsorge mit meinen Worten. Obwohl das sind die Gefühle, die in meinem Herzen sind.

Vielen Dank für die Pflege lieber Freund.

xoxoxo ♡

foam said...

the words are lovely as is the dali, dianne. i hope you had a lovely spring weekend.

dianne said...

Thank you dearest Foamy , I am pleased that you liked my poem and of course the Dali painting is beautiful.
It has been an awful weekend, heavy rain, high winds and storms ... too miserable to even go for a walk.
I hope tomorrow will be better.
I hope that you are well?

xoxoxo ♡

foam said...

yes, i'm well. thanks for asking .. :) we have also had heavy rains. must be the seasonal transition.

J Cosmo Newbery said...

No 'cold shoulder' there!

/t. said...

another winner, d

And my eyes shut tight
Not to see you
To quell the desire
That I felt in your sight


wow!

<3

dianne said...

I am pleased to hear that you are well Foamy dear. Yes I saw the terrible weather you were experiencing a little while back and since you are now in Fall I thought you might get some rain. We had some beautiful days last week, it was very warm 32ºC on Friday then this big change on Friday night. Today is cool again but not windy or raining ... so far. :)

dianne said...

No dear J Cosmo , I am not giving anyone the 'cold shoulder' and I think the girl in the painting is enjoying the Spanish sunshine.
Thanks for your comment. :)

xoxoxo ♡

dianne said...

Oh, thank you dear /t. , I am so pleased that you liked this poem, especially when you gave it a 'wow'!.
It is sad but somehow I was able to express just how I was feeling.

I hope you liked the painting by Salvador Dali, a style that is very different from his usual works of art in 'surrealism'.

xoxoxo ♡

Amiga Dienne.
No debemos de olvidar que los primeros dioses que se inventaron
fueron mujeres,despues llegaron las religiones solares y desde entonce dejaron a la mujer en un segundo término.

Elia said...

Direct to my heart!
The tears have skipped me...
What a beautiful poem!!!

There will come one day that the women we are understood in the feeling??
I will allow that this time should come, meanwhile I console myself in spite of reading yourself...

A kiss my friend,

(un beso Amiga)

Betty Manousos@ Cut and Dry said...

SO beautiful and touching!
love it!

dianne said...

Juan, querido amigo, las mujeres en la antigüedad como deidades eran adorados ... pero pronto borrado por la iglesia. Creo que la mayoría de las mujeres tienen un poco de la Diosas en ellos, es una parte de la belleza natural y la feminidad.
Un fuerte abrazo

dianne said...

Thank you dear friend Elia ,for your thoughtful words. I am pleased that my poem has touched you but please don't have tears in your eyes and heart.

dear Dianne,

thanks for this inspirational poem!
aah, bitter but so beautiful one at the same time.
"the waiting words of love i wish to tell..."

dianne said...

Thank you dear Betty for your lovely comment...no bitterness, just disappointment.
I'm so pleased that you liked that line, sometimes we cannot utter those words, they are better left unsaid.

Muriel said...

Bonsoir Dianne ,
Google's traduction is never quite the right meaning but i can grasp the essential of it .
Your poem is beautiful and touchful .
I hope you're doing well .

J Cosmo Newbery said...

I just re-read your comment. Why would you think I was saying that you were giving someone a cold shoulder? I don't understand. It looked as if the lady had an extra-ordinary warm shoulder. Hence my comment. Nothing deeper than that.

dianne said...

Thank you dear Muriel for your lovely comment. Yes the Google traduction is not accurate and I am sure that the true essence of the poem is lost in the translation... hopefully some of it is retained.
I am well now thank you. :)

xoxoxo ♡

dianne said...

Dearest J Cosmo , my comment was said in a light mannered way, nothing deeper than that.
I apologise if I caused any offence or you thought my reply was off-handed...perhaps you will forgive me, I had pneumonia and a temperature of 39.9ºC.

Dianne, you have so many comments! Love can be sad, or it can be happy, or even both.

dianne said...

Thank you for stopping by Lamby dear and for your kind words. Yes many comments but half are my responses. Love can be both happy and sad, I would like a little bit of happy for a change. I hope you are well?
xoxoxo ♡

chickory said...

you definitely are a real poet and you have become the master of combining words to image. I love the two together; the searing rawness of the emotion beside this rather weirdly quiet painting. bravo.

dianne said...

Thank you chickory dear friend for this lovely comment. You know I don't think of myself as a poet, I feel the emotions and see the images then compose a poem in words around the two ...I guess that is being poetic.
I am so pleased that you liked the honesty in this poem, it is a true account of my feelings.
I thought the Dali painting was perfect, she sits in silence turning her face, not to see and not to feel.
xoxoxo ♡
