Speak- One of my Favorite Unloved Poems

Oh, clothe those loving thoughts in words
Give voice to all that lives inside
For when they simply dormant lie
I must likewise my passion hide.
 
Oh, give utterance to love’s tides
Which now flow unchecked from your eyes
Speak them into existence, Love
Or this poor soul might think them lies.
 
Why must I question every look?
And second guess the smallest move
When all you need to do is say
What I need your love to prove.
 
Ah...speak, for tis true once it’s said
There will be no way to retrace
Your steps to that platonic state
Where love was banished from your face.
 
Then speak...speak..for I’m faint to hear
The words of love you hold so dear
You must utter them in a pledge
And breathe them sweetly in my ear!
 
Oh, for the love of heaven, SPEAK!

    I know, it is a very strange phenomenon, don't you think? Personally, I LOVE this little piece, and yet....Well, at least now I feel a bit better about it. Thanks for being my audience, Peter. :)
