Keep My Heart Safe

It’s a fragile thing
That beats inside
It’s cage

And when you are near
When you kiss
My lips
Or trace your fingertips
Over my skin

When you brush my hair
From my eyes
Or run your finger over the
Tip of my nose
And down my lips

It beats faster
Stronger
As though it is pounding
It’s fists upon the cage
Demanding to be freed

Yelling your name
Screaming
With passion

But all that is heard
Is a wild thumping inside
My chest

You can not hear the screams
You can not hear the calling
Of your name
But it is there

If you listen closely
You will hear
My heart

It beats for you

Imprisoned Words

Sometimes
When I look
At his face
I am over come
With emotion
And I have to
Pace

Myself
Contain the words
That yearn
To slip from my lips
And be heard

The words
Like fire
Inside my mouth
Plotting an escape
Burning for freedom

Smoldering on my
Tongue
I can taste the
Aching
Yearning
The desire

To be heard
To break free
But courage
Fades away

Choked back
Into my throat
I swallow
These words
And there they lie
Smoldering

Waiting
For me
To be brave
Be wild
Reckless

To set them free
