A Little Talk

A Little Talk

I struggle with words
-no, it’s true
I’m verbose, loquacious and
You don’t like me saying it
Because the other ways of
Conveying it
Suit you
And sometimes, it feels strange
To have a love, that can’t bear to hear
It’s own name
To acknowledge its own existence
Sometimes, I wonder if it’s shame
Or pride
Or indifference
None of this makes much sense now
But the hesitation that hits
When I swallow the words down?
Kicks my heart aground
A little bit deeper every time

Speaking isn’t our thing, I guess
I’ll just stick to rhymes
