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 lips
not to whisper
The waiting words of love
I wished to tell ...
