I'm a person 

I have flesh upon my beating heart
that thinks of wonders then it sparks
of thought of love anew or made
I enjoy to let it stray

I'm a sound 

My words are heard, but which are played
The one in mind won't slip away
but the ones I breath when I lay with you
seems to be the most important words to you

When I open up my mouth 

The birds and seas fly out
they flutter in and flutter out
I make the waves so timid and large
but most ocean nights have silent stars

Theres a reason I don't win 

I can't seem to know where the mirror is
so I could peer into my eyes
and ask myslef: how much I lie
but would rather wander than phase into my wise

I don't know how to begin

My eyes view so many things
and my hands have acted in many ways
but my heart waits to play the days
Of things I built inside this maze

"I'm a person
I'm a sound
When I open up my mouth
There's a reason I don't win
I don't know how to begin"

    Jessica, I really like this one. Cool how you sort of 'titled' each part of the poem. Nice meter and rhyme in this one too~Chris
