The hidden letter

My heart writes everything about you,
thoughts in me are already rising up,
my head is now over weight of words,
I'm totally and emotionally sinking in.

day after day I keep remembering you,
'cause you're the embodiment of love,
I can't resist these natural feelings,
i'm caught in the fire of your love.

Your smile has overshadowed me,
'cause your beauty has sanctified you,
I intend to confess this love to you but,
I cant- just because I'm stammering.

I have written a bunch of letters for you,
which only my head reads alone,
the more I read the love increases,
I'm now a victim of a burning flame.

your language use is improving. The rhythm of this is good and the theme is one that I do not often dabble in. The beginning and end are fine, and I would say that you have for the most part, written another good love poem.

I would use the word remembering instead of reminiscing
instead of [an] I would use [the] embodiment of love

I can't resist [these] natural feelings
Your smile [has] overshadowed me
[has] sanctified

You need to work on your tenses a little.
I know that it is a difficult thing, in English
because the word keeps changing in some cases
but I am confident that you will get it. ~ Geez.

Writing purely for oneself, is the ultimate in defensive posture.

Gee... Your comments are a valuable asset to my writing, thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Hello, Jack,
There is nothing like a love letter that will not be sent or mailed, or never seen by the object of one's love. I feel the anxiety and torment here. I like the link between the fire and flame within the last line of second stanza and the final line of the poem. Nicely connected!
Thank you!

appreciate your time of reading and commenting. I feel good when a word comes from such people like you. Thanks a bunch.
