Dear anonymous, I love you

I was always too scared
to tell you how I really felt.

But the truth is that you keep
me up most nights,
and though you’re not in my bed,
you’re in my head.

I’m saying what I know
is the truth,
because my heart is
screaming it in my ears.
But behind the closed doors
I sit silently
with a padlock closing my lips.

I only want you to know
how I really feel,
but you wont ever know.
You won’t ever read this
and believe it’s you.
You say no one will ever love you.

I’m sorry dear.

But,

I beg to differ.
