Raw Emotions: A Poem

TaJuan is an aspiring writer hoping to gain experience and growth through publishing passionate works, like this one, online for the world.

You’ll never read this

You’ll never hear this

I don’t know if that’s a good or a bad thing yet

All I know this had to be written

These words had to be spoken


Whenever I look at you

Whenever we talk

Whenever I am just in your presence

I feel emotions that I thought died a long time ago


Are you magical?

Are you an angel?

I can’t

I can’t convince myself that you’re just human

It’s just...

I don’t know.


I find myself saying that a lot whenever it involves you

“I don’t know”

I have good grades

A nice head on my shoulders

But you render me thinking static

I was the kid that could just talk for hours

Seemingly never stopping to take a breath

But you steal all the words that I could possibly say right out of my mouth


Every move I take has to be extremely calculated

For every action I take towards you frightens me

I don’t want to mess something up

Make you upset in any way

I would hate that more than anything


This isn’t just a love piece

Love doesn’t seem quite right

Infatuation is too immature

And friendliness is too weak

My feelings for you is simply a word humans haven’t created yet

But it rages on regardless

This piece isn’t poetic, nor is it prose

It’s just raw emotion attempted to be translated into words

Words that may be dull and cliché

Words that aren’t meant to be beautiful

Words that I wish I could say to you

But I never will.
