It Can't Be Said

So much of what we communicate
cannot be said;
a gaze,
a glance,
a touch,
a sigh,
a painted
fingernail.

Now, is not the time
to be shy.

I love the way
you trace the lines
of your silhouette.

The thrill of discovery.
kills the pain of regret.

The angel on my shoulder
battles the devil in the doorway.

He watches every move
as caution is smashed
against the rocks
during
this storm.

Wind howls.
Boards creak.
Chans rattle.

Candles flicker.
Lightning flashes.

War rages on behind my eyes.
I wonder if you can read my thoughts.
My words can’t escape
They are held
in prison by fear.

Afraid to tell
how I feel.

It Can't Be Said
