The man that hides


  • Emotional

    The man that hides

    what is it that makes the heart beat faster

    that makes one burn like fire for one and

    not another.

    why when all reason and common sense

    tells us we should love, we don't

    Please make sense of this for me.

    what is it that makes one ache for me

    and another act like they don't care

    I am the same person inside and out

    nothing changes in me as I stand before


    yet one sees me and is filled with passion

    admiration, respect

    the other seems unimpressed

    both say they love me

    one shows affection as do I

    one holds interesting conversations

    and enjoys talking, as do I

    One loves to make love

    anytime, anywhere, as do I

    the dynamics between us

    seem to flow so easily

    The other does not show affection

    he says thats just his way

    he really does not like to conversate

    we rarely make love

    and I feel an emptiness between us

    My love is conflicted

    I feel so much for the man that

    hides himself away

    like a child playing hide and seek

    He hides his true feelings from me

    perhaps he knows no better

    however I am lost and feeling

    isolated from my true self

    a life void of passion and affection

    is like living a lie

    but something holds me here

    and wont let me let go of

    the man that hides.

    The wonder of a question, is marveling at the answer. What is life but a series of questions, some finding answers, some not ... yet other questions take their place. For until a question finds answer, it will continue to cause life. I loved the write and the whole concept, for both hold or bring out the passion in you. Be well, I shall look into more of your work, k
