Can hearts know love without words.
Does ones mind need to hear those words to justify what it feels.
What I feel deep within I can not express with the three worded pharse you may want to hear.
Nor do I want to hear it from you lips, my ears will refuse to listen.
Is it not better to feel it in each others touches.
See it in each others eyes.
Watch it in our smiles.
For it seems that once that sentence is set free changes begin.
Its as though a challenge has been set free.
Unlocking beasts we usually do not allow to be seen.
Jealousy, suspicions, judgments, convictions are all trying to take control.
Laughter suddenly changing to angry words that can cut, hurts so deep.
Repairs forever harder to be made.
Touches forgetting hoe to caress.
Lips faking smiles no longer wanting to be kissed.
Hands no longer wanting to be held.
O, how I fear those words more then any other I may hear.
Do not say those words for it may make me run away.
Show me so I will stay.
Kiss my lips with true emotions.
Hold my hand.
Caress me with your eyes, your smiles, your tenderness.
Touch my heart.
In return you will know what lies within my own.
Words are for those who know no other way.
Those who seek to latch on to something that they may not really know the meaning of.
The inner chambers know what is real.
The lucky ones who find their souls mate know what it is.
They do not need the words to express what lives within.
They do what it is.
