My Secret Love

Updated on June 2, 2017

You Satisfy Me In So Many Ways

I look around and see no one coming

How wonderful it would be

To tell you my deepest thoughts

I have been carrying them around with me my whole life

Up to now

I never dared tell a soul

In day to day conversation

Many times I tried to tell you and many of my friends

Then I wondered

If word got out

What would you think of me ?

Would you understand ?

How could you ?

If you knew already

Why wouldn't you or someone else ever say anything

After all these years

Not even a word

Every day I would wait

For the perfect time

Then it was if something else became more important

Slowly I am going to lose my mind

How could this happen

I find time in the morning if not in the afternoon

To be together

At night was easy

Everyone else was easily distracted

After a long day

I can't wait to fall into your loving arms

You comfort me every time

Calming me down

When I get nervous

You are quiet but always listening

When I am upset

After spending time with you

My troubles don't seem as big

You didn't have to do or say anything

Just being with you

Made me smile

As soon as we are apart

I can't wait till we are together again

I look at the clock

How can I make time

When everyone is at work

I go to our secret place

After a few hours

I leave so happy

I think this feels so right

Most people think it's wrong

I have been in my car

Pulled into a quiet place

Hoping nobody would notice

In the past

I ran late for work because we just had to meet

Trying to cover for you

I would make up stories

I know they are lies

Then I dream

This can go on forever

I don't believe

What so many say

All good things must come to an end

Ever since we have been spending more time together

My life is different in so many ways

I feel more alive

I want to do and be more

It is as if

Somebody gave me a power bar or energy drink

I know they are so bad for you

All high in sugar and you can get your body hooked

Just like drugs

There were times I almost got caught

My explanation sounded fishy

Then as if guilt wasn't enough

I played it off

Like nothing had happened

I figured I have to tell someone

So there is no other way to say it

I love sleep

Anytime I get a free moment

I think how great a cat nap would be

Just ten minutes

Then it's a half hour before you know it

My wife is on to me

She will be shocked as you are

A few times

I have heard her say

It's two in the afternoon

Who goes to sleep now

I do

When I awake I assure you

I will be ready to take on the world

      Is writing and speaking is your main source of income. I am a fast order cook by trade and want to put my creative energies into developing inventions. They requires lots of imagination and will power to make possible. Writing is exciting and expands my mind and so many possibilities. In the future hope to write a book on poems. Many ideas and always pressed for time. The big and most important thing in my life is to be healthy and happy whatever I am doing at the moment. If I make the right choices money will allow me more freedom, flexibility and time to do more things and help other people at the same time. Thank you for sharing. May today be full of beautiful wonders we have never seen before.

      Manatita 44 When someone loses a days pay I know how important every dollar is. Money doesn't grow on trees. I am glad you made the right choice to take care of your health over wealth.I average about five to six hours a sleep a night. So when I get a free moment and nobody is looking I shut my eyes. Instantly I can go into a deep sleep. So many people want to go out drinking and partying. I love to find a quiet spot and off I go to dream all new thoughts so different than the ones I experience during the day. I constantly create a world that only exists in my mind. Thank you for rereading my hub. Whenever I put a comment on one of my hubs I reread my own hub again. It serves many purposes. I read and look for mistakes and errors that I might of missed. I think did I do my best when I explained my feelings and emotions at that very moment when I wrote my poem. I thank God for giving the opportunity to share with the world. That is so large I can't even grasp the concept yet. I take great pride in my work even if no one else understands what I am trying to write and why. I look ahead years into my future and dream of my next writing and all my beautiful friends who will take me there. Thank you for sharing your precious time reading my words. There is no amount of money that can show my appreciation. So I give you words that a writer can hold as precious as gold. It is here on these illuminating pages I send you my gratitude and sincere honesty how nice it is to have my thoughts, concepts and dreams read by you. Have a beautiful and rewarding day.

      Well, a little better. Back to work. Didn't make it to Scotland though. So lost two lots of cash. Still, it was a good decision.

      re-read your poem. It's actually quite deep this one. (Chuckle).

      Gypsy Rose Lee A little mystery in every day keeps us guessing and on the quest for more. I am glad you enjoyed reading. Have a wonderful night.

      manatita 44 Please keep me informed of all your progress. I feel so bad when anyone has plans to travel and has to cancel. Once I was sick on vacation and all I wanted to do is be home in my own bed. My wife and I took a walk and I feel a little better. Thank you for caring.

      Tired. Like I said in another of your Hubs. I'm meant to go to Scotland on Saturday and I'm not sure if I will. I cancelled Bristol last week. Just going through a bad patch of tiredness. Will see my therapist tomorrow evening. Still working at 65. So something to consider as well.

      Tell the wife. Be brave and face your fears. Do it like a poet with roses. Write to me and I'll do the appropriate poem for you. Do it in style and not the usual way. Newness can be so impactful!!

      I hope that has cheered up up. (Chuckle).
