, , ,

I am gagged.
Your silence
has taped my mouth shut
Words of love
held captives
within the walls of my heart
jostle, push and shove
to break free
and dance in abandon for you.
Caged in the dark confines
of my pulsing flesh and blood heart
they long for escape
to roam free
and reveal
what they feel.
I am gagged
Your silence has
taped my mouth shut.
my words of love
failures in their search for expression
and die a silent death.
