This is a free verse poem. The poem is inspired by Maya Angelou's quote "There is no great agony than bearing an untold story inside you."

Time was fairy and roses
Flowering the heart
Basking in the exuberance
Of Love and ally

Days flew with gusto
Akin to a swarming river
Nights went at an alarming speed
To the analogous heartbeats of presence

Stars glowed radiantly
Came closer to the reality
A 360 degree somersault
Vacating the heart forever

Soul mourned for a soul
Too close to be far
With cherished memories
As heart’s rations

The heart aches
A forcefully ran machine
Of oil and love

Days linger
Heart bleeds
Only time
A catalyst for better

Those three eternal words
Felt from deep within
With agony ballooning
A story left untold

Different would it be
Had I said
The eternal words
I Love You?

How I wish so...
But the reality refuses
To be back to fairy and roses
Now only reminiscences

Nothing would change
The present being
But still my heart fancy writing
An ‘I Love You’ verse

  1. Wonderful poem. Mental illness has prevented me from having romantic love or success in my life. I go on, mostly because it irritates people who would like for people like me not to exist.
    My work for the Wednesday prompt is here.


    1. Thank you so much! May Lord give strength to fight it out. Good Luck and prayer.

  2. Regret! Saying it is always better than regretting later having not said it! Good poem :)
