In an attempt to tell you how I feel
I scrawl jumbled words onto the page
Words that you will never see nor hear
The simple phrase I love you catches in my throat
I spoke them falsely too many times
Until they became brittle and hollow
Unfit for the depths of my feelings for you
The sweetest lover’s song is off key
Honeyed lyrics become the epitome of banality
When I try to use them to express my love for you
Thus for now my ardor will remain unspoken
Yet look closely and see it in my eyes
Draw me even closer and feel it in my touch…
