Forbidden Eloquence

Why is it that we’re most eloquent when the person the eloquence is aimed at cannot hear what was said?

Why am I most eloquent
When you think me silent
You will never know
My golden words
Meant for you
But not
For your ears to hear
Or your eyes to see
Why am I most eloquent
In my forbidden thoughts
Forbidden by you
And our current bond
Hope you enjoy, please feel free to comment.

  1. Why? Because we’re the most eloquent when we’ve had a stretch of time to think about what exactly we want to say, and by the time that period is over the other person has died of boredom.
    Interesting poem, by the way. Whimsical and not spanning more than a small period… Rather like eloquence.

    • I was more meaning the eloquence born of feelings you dare not express except in secret, to yourself. But yes, the eloquence you speak of is definitely only born with time to think, which is why people are so rarely eloquent, they so rarely take time to think. Glad you enjoyed the poem, thanks for the thought.

  2. So true. I liked it. You’re such a great poet. I struggle with poetry. A lot.
