Unspoken Words


Haunted by the words I never said,
Not knowing if he ever felt the same,
Paralyzed by a heart filled with dread,
Haunted by the words I never said.
I don’t know where our path might have led
And I’ve only got myself to blame,
Haunted by the words I never said,
Not knowing if he ever felt the same.

An interesting rhyme scheme and a heartfelt expression.

Ah - a lovely triolet and real regret in every line; a choice that ended up being no choice is sometimes the worst thing of all "haunted by words never said" - indeed

The repetition drives your point home strongly.

Old Ollie said...

excellent structure - it really propels the theme

I love the triolet form and this poem is top-notch, Mary!

What we don't say or do often haunts us more than what we do say or do. I do understand this in my own life. Poignant and true.
