Roaring in Silence

I couldn't speak. 
I chose not to utter a word
Even if I wanted to shout
To the whole world
How much you mean to me.
So many times,
I wanted to whisper it
In your ear
But I couldn't even
Make a sound 
Or at least an echo 
Of what my rumbling heart
Needs to convey. 
My fear of losing you
Silenced my thoughts 
Of wanting to make you mine.

But then again,
I continued to listen
To every forceful thump 
Of my heart 
That overrides my strength to think
Whenever you're beside me.

And so here I am.
Roaring in silence.
