There are words
eager to be said
but they are stuck
I long for them
to roll out
on their tail
but not this time
Perhaps the moment
will be yours
and the look in
me to breathe

Sometimes it is difficult to say what’s on our mind. Beautifully said.

Sometimes we do want to express our pent up feelings but fear either rejection or consequences. Well expressed!

Honesty comes much lighter than we anticipate…
Love it! Have a beautiful March and week ahead! 🙂
You’re probably right, Marina…the anticipation itself can cause lots of agony! 🙂 Thanks so much, my friend, and Happy March and have a great week ahead, too! ♥
It ca be hard to be completely honest at times.
Yes, it can and sometimes it’s not always the best policy. Thanks, Binky! 🙂
Unspoken words can be a burden on our hearts Lauren.
Then again silence can be golden sometimes.
Both thoughts are so true, Ian; thanks for sharing and commenting again! 🙂
Thanks so much, Iris! ♥ xo

You have captured a common feeling in an elegant way. Thank you for sharing your gift with words! (((hugs)))
Thank you so much for your lovely comment and many hugs returned!
I’m really loving your writing as always my friend. It’s awesome how we “know” our favorite writers and can feel their progression and continued inspirations as they continue to write. You’re the best Lauren!
Aww, Scott, you just added sunshine to my “gray” kinda day. Thanks for that awesome complement and your perfect timing! You’re the best, too! 🙂
I’ve been busy so it’s so beautiful to stop by and read your amazing words. You are one talented dame. Mucho love to you.
Aww, thanks, Millie! That’s nice to “hear!” I’ve been sick with the flu and have also run into a block wall with writing, so I’m taking some time off for now…much love to you, too, and take care! ♥
Feel better,darling. We will meet up soon…
very well captured in your poem, Lauren. Love and hugs from across the creek xxx
Thanks again, Francina! It’s always nice to see you around here. Ironically, I’m on a little blog break; not sure what I’m doing right now but writer’s block has arrived. 🙂 Love and hugs across the pond! xo
That is okay 🙂 Enjoy your blog break, hurry back though because you will be missed. love and hugs across the pond! xo
Nicely written Lauren and I especially like the closing lines!
Thanks so much Don! I appreciate you stopping by. I’m actually taking a blog break and am not sure how long I’ll be away. So I apologize for missing your wonderful posts but I hope you’re doing well!
You’re most welcome Lauren. While you’re on that break I’ll have a chance to catch up! I become hopelessly slow getting to posts but I do eventually get there, yours amoung my favourites! Don’t worry about missing posts Lauren, besides they are all archived on my literary blog! I’ve been busy as ever with my new business and not much else. I hope you and your family are all doing well.
Thanks, Don, for wanting to catch up on my blog. That’s very sweet and warms my heart. Good luck with your new business, too! I hope success becomes yours! 🙂 Take care!
Sweet and dainty… ❤
Oh and I nominated you for a writing challenge, if you choose to accept: http://poeticparfait.com/2015/03/19/poem-about-flames-and-love/
Thanks so much, Christy, for your complement! And I appreciate you thinking of me in this challenge, too. But right now I’m on a blogging break and when I return is unknown at this time. 🙂 So I’m going to pass for now, but thank you again, my sweet friend! Hugs!
There is a nice way of saying even the “un-nice” and an “un-nice” way of expressing, even the “nice”. Your verses – nice 🙂
Thanks so much for your “nice” comment, Eric! 🙂 I hope you’re doing well with all your writing endeavors! I’ve actually been on a blog break since the end of Feb. and really not sure if I’ll return…my blogging “career” may be ending after four years. I just haven’t decided, yet, but I wish you all the best if I don’t return. Much love and many blessings and I thank you for all your past support…
Take a break, if you have to, Lauren – that’s what I did. But, hopefully, you’ll keep the bridge open 🙂
Thank you for your well wishes,
A situation so perfectly captured in beautifully written words!
Thanks so much for your kind comment, Jennifer, and for also following me. I found you through Scott Mitchell and I’m glad I did. But just so you know, I’m not blogging as often as I used to but I’ll visit you when I am. Thanks again, Lauren ♥
I’m sorry to hear that. I am really enjoying your beautiful poetry! I have my slow blogging times too- sometimes life just gets in the way! I look forward to reading your books (and thank you for the great excuse to do some book shopping 😉 !). Best of luck!!
Thanks so much, Jennifer and if you buy my books, I hope you enjoy. I’ll be posting off and on and when I’m “on” I’ll be over your way. Take care and enjoy your adventures. I’ll look forward to more amazing photos, too! ♥
