My close friend wrote this five years ago for a lady whom he met at work… and loved in silence. Sadly, this never got into her.
There are several things that I want to tell you in person but I just can’t. I couldn’t muster the courage to talk about things I assume would be insignificant to you. Fear overtook me. I am afraid to lose you and I don’t know how to reveal this to you.
I love you.
It all started when I first saw you on the aisle. I was so busy but you took a few seconds of my time–and it relieved all my stress away. We chatted. We hung out. We became friends. Just then did I realize that I’m beginning to like you more than just a friend. I started to care for you, and hoped you’ll do the same for me too. You are ethereal–a heaven-sent.
However, I still didn’t tell you that I love you… because you’re into someone else.
There is no us but I still dread the days when I see you and him together. I got no right to claim you mine but it pains me so hard when I hear you calling his name. Call me naïve but I can’t get you out of my head. Nothing can help me explain the pain than tears in this lonely side of my room, while looking at the yellow orange haze of the early sky.
You were once a spur of the moment, or so I thought, but now you are my every moment. I love you and I want you in my life. I just don’t know how to say it… because I’m afraid to lose you in the process.
So, allow me to love you in silence.
