Words I Would But Will Not Say
Oft' I wait across the way,
by David Zvekic
Staid nerves defy my flustered heart
With words I would but will not say,
So steel my tongue before I start.
And while I know what I intend
In wanting what can never be,
As words would form - they do amend:
I'll speak not them nor forsake thee.
Within such silence I would oath,
Though grammar has eluded me,
To form a sentence without mouth -
Expressing thoughts that should not be.
And though in saying, truths appear,
And longing, letters could transcribe,
This heart is as a crystal, clear,
And nothing more could words describe.
