CAN'T    SPEAK



Words,

Will not come to my lips
As I struggle to tell
They form in my mind but
In my mouth they won't gel

I am yearning to speak
To describe how I feel
I vow to be truthful
Swear on oath and reveal

But those words are frightened
They hide and camouflage
Drawing up a barrier
That will not be charged

I am desperate to tell you
About the warmth that brims
The sheer ecstasy that invades
When you cast me a grin

So while my lips may be sealed
I must find another way
To describe my passion
And to make you stay

The only way I know how
Where I can truly unveil
Unleash my thoughts and
Dreams can be set to sail

Words that are written
More significant than voice
Untether my consternation
Bathe in the language of my choice
