WORDS

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.
