speechless, I’m stuck, afraid to speak
vacuous silence escapes my mouth
no words exist now except for:
I want you. I need you.
unable to conjur anything but:
Hold me. Kiss me.
over and over, an endless mantra:
Be with me. Let me love you.
I cannot take the leap
choking, I swallow my feelings
my heart, a drunken spinning fish
caught in a glass bowl of restraint
wanting to swim out to you
but can only spiral round
I can only laugh at myself
wanting you so much
