Don`t Tell Me You Love Me

by Timothy r   Oct 29, 2007

Words conveyed with tear drenched eyes
hearing true meaning without sound
telling myself it is all a bad dream
please...don`t tell me you love me

Arguments started but never completed
reconciled within naive denial
heartache unraveling from the core
hindered by broken wings that never soar

Vows that sadly cannot endure
promises made but now ignored
answers to questions constantly needed
please..don't tell me you love me

Pain has enveloped my soul`s desire
trying not to be consumed by hell`s fire
selfishness has taken over my mind
as redemption I seek to find

Haunted by memories of time gone awry
Having seen all the tears you have cried
just one request as we retreat
please...don`t tell me you love me

    I'm sure it's already been said, but here it is anyway.

    I like the repetitive line "please...don't tell me you love me", it gives that line such power.

    The emotion crafted in the magnificent lines of this poem are astounding.
    You have such a wonderful way with words and I would love to see a new poem posted.
    Love ya, Holly
