For Now

I whisper your name
Through the darkness
Breaking a silence
That has lasted years
But you are not yet able
To hear me
To understand
The extent of my emotions
So for now
I will love you
From only within

Dana

  1. I love the way the lines move in this poem, Dana, especially the last three. "So for now / I will love you" is so powerful. "I will love you / From only within" is so haunting. All together this poem is just lovely. Thank you for sharing!

  2. I like the power of the lines:
    I whisper your name
    Breaking a silence.

    They make me stop and listen
