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 how people act when their past has hurt them.

They hide behind their feelings to protect themselves from getting hurt. It seems easier than believing love is real.

They need to take a chance and toss their fears behind them. Never looking back.

Don't Hide Your Love

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

The past can be haunting
but toss it behind and don't look back
open your eyes to see what's in front of you.

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

Don’t hide behind feelings
you try hard to bury,
for true love
doesn't 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.”
