' How Do I Reach You?

If I could put it into words -
All that my heart is feeling,
Would they help to warm your heart
Or would they send you reeling?

There are so many emotions
So many words to say,
But which ones would you savor
And which ones throw away?

I live in indecision -
Which formula is best?
Overwhelm you with my thoughts
Or give your heart a rest;

It's difficult to hold inside
This flood of raw emotion
That threatens now to drown me
Like a shipwreck on the ocean;

I would die a thousand deaths
To think you never knew
Just how much you mean to me.............
But how do I reach you?

This poem still touches a chord after all these years.Well done Linda.
A sense of overwhelming emotion and no way of getting to or through to the object of such intense affection.... It's a dire strait to be in... convincingly, powerfully and lyrically portrayed as always.... xxx
Linda how saddeningly beautiful. So much depth to the one wanting only to be able to love the other. How wonderfully expressed.
I loved your approch. God bless you.
I live in indecision - in limbo as shipwreck
