A Secret That Shall Not Be Told For A Long Time
I am only a child, yes a young one too.
by Elizabeth Tews
But I have this feeling that no others my age have.
It is a feeling so awkward, yet so ardent
It is amazing yet unnerving
It stays then goes, but when it stays,
It stays for a while.
And when it stays, I cannot get rid of it.
Amiable it can be, but it can also be hostile
What is this feeling you ask?
It is Love I tell you-
But I am too young,
and definitely not ready to love in public
I will just keep this feeling inside me,
safe and sound.
Were no one else can sustain.
A secret you and I must only discern
A secret that shall not be told for a long, long time.
