Don’t let it be seen.

If one day it will be hard for you to see another’s man’s face, don’t let it be seen, let it go and show them nothing.
Although it also becomes harder to explain what they are asking you about, don’t let it show, just let it seep away.
Should it hurt you when you mention my name, don’t let it be seen, it’s not merely that you do not know me and the fault is yours.
When asked about why you are so introvert and hidden, tell them nothing, don’t show it to anyone, don’t let it be seen.
But if it helps you to think that I am the one you should blame, remember that you do not own me and show them nothing.
Although this seems to be the easy way out of it, keep it inside yourself, don’t let it be seen, no show them nothing.
Although you know that it is the wrong thing to say, say that you do not care and do not, oh please no, don’t tell them anyhing.
You may be able to see and think, that you can see a way out of this and that’s the way right there, tell it to no one, no way, it is not.
Although you will feel pain if you choose to go, it will follow you because I have gone and never to be seen again, so don’t let it be seen.
Should you then one day smile when they mention my name, and they think they know you but they do not, and don’t let it be seen.
Should you laugh when they say that all things were my fault, then they don’t know the two us, and say nothing and show them nothing.
Even if you feel you have nothing more to hide, keep it inside yourself, tell them nothing, no way, it is not.
You are so beautiful and you are my ultimate grasp for love, I got you to heaven and your screams told that you were on your way, show it to no one, no, not anymore.
Even if they ask you about the overturned lamp and the broken glasses, tell them nothing, just say you were clumsy or don’t let it be seen.
Look at all the beautiful flowers I brought you, showing you how much you mean to me, but do not show anyone anything.
Even if you feel hurt, then the pain on the outside is not as bad as the pain inside, but don’t let it be seen, show them nothing.
You know that I am the one that make your blood rush and boil in your venes, and whom have you not shown your happiness for? No, let it be, don’t let it be seen.
Although you might one day sit alone and think of me, and a smile draws a track on your cheeks, don’t let it be seen, and I ask of you? No way never to me, don’t let it be seen.

About jachso

Hey Destiny Poets. I live in Denmark about 90 km from Copenhagen and works in Roskilde as a teacher and mentor. I'm probably not like most men of my age and yes I am aged 50 years old. I've tried a lot of jobs without finding what I'm passionate about. Writing, I have always loved and I was probably just 14 years old when I produced my first poem. I have not yet been released some of my poems, but I hope it happens one day. I just finished a novel which I would like to have published, now the time and talent show whether I have the ability to write. Poetry has a special meaning for me and this is where I really feel at home. My life has sometimes been marked by many losses. In the mid eighties, I lost my fiance at the time when the accident happened was pregnant. She lost control of the car and drove herself and her child, who was on his way thereby, to death. It has really made its mark on my life and way of thinking. In the late nineties, I had problems with my back and had to seek other avenues to support myself. I finally decided to enroll at university and was admitted to the humanist line. I read philosophy, science, psychology, journalism and history, but philosophy and psychology is my major interest. I thrive today in the RUC aka Roskilde University just 25 km from Copenhagen. My job is to guide and teach, and it is a job with speed and that gives me a lot again. I have two collections of poems ready to be released, if I can find a publisher who will publish them. I have no children, it would obviously be my lot in life although I have tried, but luck never smiled at me that way. If you have any questions for me so I hope you just ask away all you want, I'll respond as soon as I have read the questions. With kindest regards from Jan Sorensen

    ” Don’t let it be seen ” , takes the reader to the outermost parameters of poetry. The work itself requires that the truly diligent reader to peruse it at least twice,possibly more , in order to extract the maximum value from what is a poetic Magnum Opus. In general , the poem itself reads very much in the style of a character’s confessional self-reflections that you might expect to read in an excerpt from a novel . I think ” Don’t let it be seen ” to be quite an acclompishment.

      This piece of work is written to the women’s international day on the 8. of March 2013, it describe how two lovers living in a troubled and violent relationship cope but with a twist so that it is seen from the male point of view and how he controls the female with poor words but keep her caught with treats. Very impulsive written. I hope I did succeed 🙂
