Retract Thy Words!

Poem By Anne Onymous

Retract thy words!
Or he will see
the secrets in my heart
Too much! Too soon!
My feelings must
remain within the dark -
From he who has a shining soul
But a life much of his own
I would wait, at least for now
Until our friendship's grown

But too late? your words I fear
Already have been seen?
A fear instilled within his mind
An awakening from dreams.
How quick one falls
How deep one swims
Within the words one writes
His conscience maybe, right now
Is asking 'is this right'?

My heart, if you should read this now
And question words of late
Trust in me, and worry not
Forever I will wait
Till we are ready. Or maybe not?
Who knows if that will be
The words I write
The words I say
Conjure differently?
From images you've yet to see
And things we do not know
But should we fail, And never be
I will always love you so.

A Prince Amongst Men

If only you could see, my Prince
The tears upon my cheek
The joy you’ve bought into my life
You should not ever speak,

Courage

I heard his voice! Oh!
Its sang to me!
and with the words that came
A sense of calm washed over me

The Call

He saw your words
And tried to call
I couldn't speak to him
He'll say 'I'm flattered'

Joy

Oh Heavenly, Boundless, Rapturous joy!
From this doubt I'm freed!
My heart it sings
my body bathes

Possibilities

I lay upon the forest floor
And listened to his voice
My heart echoed in his words
And then, there was no choice

Potential

I missed my lift from life again
And watched it drive on by
I stood and waved and grimly smiled
and walked the thousand miles
