Poem: Hiding 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

Hiding your love is a poem about a man who says he loves one woman. His words tell her she is the only one, but those words are deceitful. He fears being too close. He lies to hide mobile messages where he gets his needed fix from others. He keeps secrets rejoicing in his silent victory.

"Hiding from Love" by Bruce Murray


Hiding Your Love

Saying he wants only her cherishing their love like a keepsake more valuable than any other with no need to look elsewhere.

Holding her tight
in his arms,
deceitful words
lying to her face.

Hiding mobile communication
to maintain his obsession,
getting intoxicated
by others recognition.

Fearful to give
to one completely,
keeping secrets,
rejoicing in his silent victory.

"Secret Love" by Hunter Hayes
