Taught tax topics twenty times
Touting tax tips he tried
Till terribly tongue-tied
Twisted tongue tending to twine

Every time that I am with you my heart seems to beat fast,
Every time that I am with you, I just can't get rid of this smile,
Oh, you really have those wonderful eyes.

Those eyes that sparkle.
Those big brown eyes,
That I can compare to a star that twinkles.

You also have a wonderful heart
that spreads a positive vibe.
It's like every time, yes
Every time that I am with you, my problems seems to go away.
If only I can tell you, "baby, please stay?"

Every time that I am with you, how I wish that the time wouldn't run fast,
I wish it would stop,
For,
I just want to tell you,
I just want to express;
this feeling on my chest,
It screams,
It says:
hey, " I like you".
hey, "I wanted to be with you".

lips like liquor
conversations always wasted
Rachel Glen Jul 2017
i wish i could describe how i feel,
when i look into your eyes.
like falling, i lose my grip on reality,
when my tongue gets tied.
if i could give you the words,
a key to my heart, something to be heard.
forever pushes us together,
hand in hand, stronger than ever.

"I would like to be the air
that inhabits you for a moment
only. I would like to be that unnoticed
& that necessary."
The last stanza from my favorite poem " Variation of the Word Sleep" by Margaret Atwood.

Another Hedgehog dilemma.
Tongues in knots,
overflowing words make like lakes inside my mouth.
Slit my throat, ****** waterfalls pouring down my neck.
Spell all the things I don't dare to say.

these words used to spill from my fingertips like individual flowers from a downturned bouquet
but now they tangle on the way out of my mouth, and form knots in my throat.
i heave and heave and feel them tighten more,
no way to explain myself
no way to speak
follow by example and shove your fingers down my throat (like i have so many times before) and thread the needle
i am full of poison and this is the only way to get it out.
i write a few lines every so often and then forget about it until i go to clear my 'notes' tab.

Kiss my throat,
and taste the words
I long to say to you.
Gwen Pimentel Jan 2015
If talking to you
Were as easy as writing a poem,
We would never stop talking
