My mouth is closed shut like a zipper cemented onto a pair of light blue jeans.
You don’t have to worry,
Your secret’s safe with me.
I won’t open my lips.
I’ll leave my teeth unbrushed,
But please forgive me when I say I must eat.
My secret is safe with you,
But you don’t know how hard it was to tear out my heart and store it in a box for you.
I’m mad at myself.
I’m mad that I can’t tell you how I feel.
I’m mad at our lips for never touching.
I’m mad at my mouth for never saying those three words.
I’m mad at God,
Because he made me so sentimental and kind- that I don’t resemble your average guy.
I’m mad at you for being so drop dead gorgeous.
And I’m furious with my heart because it never beats rhythmically when you’re around.
My lips are shut,
Your secret is safe.
