What goes unsaid? e.g., unrequited love, hidden contempt, spoiler
He could never say it aloud
for fear of starting to stammer.
Instead he lived under a cloud,
depressed but ever enamored.
He sat down and composed some verse.
Emboldened by words, he conversed
with his love by baring his soul.
He won her heart, as was his goal.
