Unspoken Candor


If you knew
How my heart rumbled
Every time you were near

If you knew
How your scent
Had me wish I was always near

If you knew
How your touch
Radiated through my body even after you were gone

If you knew these things
then maybe you wouldn’t have questioned the extent of my love

If you knew
How much I prayed
For progression in all you do

If you knew
How I smiled
Every time I spoke of you

If you knew
How just being around you
Made my whole world at peace

If only you knew
That you were my shelter from the cruel world we see

If you knew
How I felt
When my shelter no longer hid me from the storm

If you knew
How I doubted
When i realized my prison was my home

If you knew
How much I wanted to stay
And how painful it is for me to leave

If you knew these very few things
You would know the truest of me

However my candor wasn’t enough
So now it is time to desert me
