Tiptoeing through word pockets
Seems childishly delightful.
I litter kisses on your cheek
and hop into giddiness.
Nuzzling warmth into skin,
Smiling and saying nothing,
Patiently diluting the imminent explosion.
But the heart is not the head
And I want to tell you everything.
There is too much for
Simple sugary glee
And I am desperate to share each sun burnt phrase,
Over and over again
So that we can peel away
Non functioning syllables
Useless falsities and shy giggles of sweetness.
Let us dig and dig and dig until
A painfully scribbled page appears
With nonsensical verses that
Stab and scar and swell
And we un-crumple everything
Remove forgetfulness from the trash
And make it beautiful.
