Poem by Rabindranath Tagore
I long to speak the deepest words, I have to say to you; but I dare not, for the fear that you should laugh. That is why I laugh at myself and shatter my secret in jest. I make light of my pain, afraid you should do so.
I long to tell yo the truest words, I have to say to you; but I dare not, being afraid that you would not believe them. That is why I disguise them in untruth, saying the contrary of what I mean. I make my pain appear absurd, afraid that you should do so.
I long to use the most precious words I have for you; but I dare not, fearing I should not be paid with like value. That is why I give you hard name and boast of my callous strength. I hurt you, for fear you should never know any pain.
I long to sit silent by you; but I dare not lest my heart comes out at my lips. That is why I prattle and chatter lightly and hide my heart behind words. I rudely handle my pain. for fear you should do so.
I long to go away from your side; but I dare not, for fear my cowardice should become known to you. That is why I hold my head high and carelessly come into your presence. Constant thrusts from your eyes keep my pain fresh forever.
