Poem: Don't Hide Your Love

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

Don't hide your love is a poem about what people do when their past has hurt them. They hide behind their feelings to protect themselves from getting hurt. It seems easier than believing love can be real. They should take a chance and toss their fears behind them. Never looking back.

Don't Hide Your Love

I wish I could make your heart
trust mine,
for my love for you is real.

I understand the past can haunt us
but I wish you could toss it behind
and not look back.

I am here out of love,
not necessity,
to embrace each moment
we enjoy together.

Don’t hide behind those feelings
you are trying so hard to bury,
know that love
doesn't need to hurt.

Love is blind and love can be foolish. Our heart doesn’t always love the right people at the right time. Sometimes we hurt the ones that love us the most and sometimes we love the ones that don’t deserve our love at all.”
