neversaid

i am a shallow soul, with shallow joys,
seeing somebody smiling is good enough
for me to say i am happy for that person.
but i am neversaid.

i am a faithful friend, with faithful hopes,
you can speak and i am here to listen,
my shouder is here if you need it.
but i am neversaid.

i am a funny bone, with funny ways
to make you laugh and forget a sorrow,
to make you smile, at least until tomorrow.
but i am neversaid.

i am a learned mind, with learned words
to spin until you think i must be brilliant
or else a madman, but at least a genius.
but i am neversaid.

i am a pining poet, with pining songs
to make the forests blush in shame,
to make the sun and moon regret their beauty,
for i am neversaid.

i am the unshed tear, the stifled shout,
the swallowed declaration of that truest heart,
because i must give way to others,
and thus– i am neversaid.
