Unsaid


Relationships are complex.... they are coiled and zigzagged to understand and to put in words. Most of us are blessed as we can talk things off. But, few are there who can never or in more appropriate words they won't. That's the way they are.
Not everyone is good at expressing the way he/she feels. They are well aware of the fact and way the other person feels but they can never say and they never will. All their feelings are bottled up and things and are just left unsaid.. !!!
Read this twisted case of a father and a son who were fated to live together. But look how it turned out.

There are things
you'll never say.
I know, coz
You and I
We are born that way.
Father, you never have to say.
Because I know they are there.
Will always be
Even when you'll be gone
and my hair will  turn grey.

Love you shower
in your taunts and anger.
I know the way you
mask your feelings
without a slight delay.
Theatrics very often
you display.

Care which you hide
in your voiceless whispers..
At times, to pull me back
you just push me away.
Hardly you blab my name
for weeks and days.
but, you add it
every single time you pray.

I am well aware of that
love and care.. trust me
you never have to say.
You love me and
I love you more.
But, I'll never say.
coz, Father
You and I
We are born that way.

Can someone really suppress their feelings to this extent ?? 
 Can someone leave things like this unsaid ??

  1. I guess it depends on how open the relationship is. Sometimes so much goes unsaid and yet in hindsight, often when it's too late, we wish we'd said the things we didn't say. Yes things like this happen all the time, sad, isn't it?

  2. Hello.
    I have to agree with Daydreamertoo. We only realize when it's too late what we should have said when we had the chance. I'm an emotional man who does not hesitate to express how he's feeling...I guess that's why I write love poetry (smile). I know there are some people who just don't know how to express themselves and in a lot of these cases, actions do speak louder than words. Nice post Jyoti. Thanks for sharing & for visiting. It's always nice to see your smiling face. Have a great week ahead, my dear!

  3. Many a times the relationships remain unexpressed verbally but only through a prayer! Beautiful expression, Jyoti!

  4. Yeah you can tell many a time, some relationships are just like that. Either way it is nice as long as the feeling is there.

  7. actions can speak louder than words so instead of saying it, love may be expressed through various actions..

  9. Very touching. However love/affection may not need any language to express and I feel like going with Magiceye. But Brian has some thing very valid too. Suppression of feelings does haunt. But in relationships they seem to be unavoidable to a certain extent.

  19. Jyoti,

    It is not very common but at times it happens when two though very close are not expressive enough to convey their inner feelings.

    Take care

  20. Very interesting post.

    Words are very important in our daily lives whether we want to express love,appreciation, criticize, scold,display our anger or affection and so on. So selection of words is of paramount importance. Any wrong use of words will permanently ruin a relationship because words leave a lasting scar in the heart of the person.

    I enjoyed this lovely post along with meaningful photos.

    Have a nice day,
    Joseph

  22. Father's and sons are epitome of indirect emotion converse. Needless to say whatever father's do, even if it might appear harsh but is always for the child.

    You are so powerful in your choice of words :)

  30. I left the unsaid words in the past, when my best friend lost her dad, I understood it was time to say things out loud or one day it would be too late and I would live with regrets.
    Very nice poem - powerful message. Always a pleasure to read you Jyoti.

  31. Though we are all born like that, your poem can make someone cry. It is beautiful poem.

  32. Expressiveness is a very potent tool in relationships with people.However,lots of people are not endowed with it.They keep their feelings to themselves when they should share,but it's something that can be learned.

  33. Beautiful creations...words are not always necessary to express our feelings because at times the voice of silence is more vocal. very sensitive and heart touching thoughts...
