Unspoken
Eve Hall

Never saying what we really mean.
Never letting the other one know the truth.
Never wanting to be found out.

Trying hard to keep our feelings inside.
Trying hard to deceive, to dismiss, to deny.
Isn't this a form of lying?

Words that need so much to be heard.
Words that need so much to be spoken.
Yet, never knowing how the other will react,
Unkind, uncaring, unloving.

Do we take the chance to win or lose?
I think we will leave the words?
