Where were the words

why couldn't we talk

So much I wanted to say 

but the words got caught in my throat


Why did the magnet push us apart

when there were words to say


Could it be different at a different time

was it just the timing

I don't know


So awkward 

So off beat


We couldn't get the timing 

of the dance


Yet the magnet drew us together

so strong and sure

Until there were words...


Our bodies had a language of their own

they flowed so freely

We moved in sync

Not a missed beat


My body craves you

it feels so all alone

How can I heal it


Now that you are gone...

Thanks Tony. I tend to be a story telling poet. Do you do open mic? Your poems are wonderful. Seems like great 3 minute length for that venue. I hesitate to put my longer poems on here as of yet. I am brand new to this site. I'll get braver I hope.
