There are many letters and syllables
that wish to seep out of my mouth
but I am bound by the essence of love.
My love for you
moving beyond reason
and into madness.
This world is not enough
to contain my madness
yet I am silent.
You live on my lips,
a resident in every breath I take
whispering sweet nothings to my soul.
Sometimes I feel you slipping
through the gaps in our fingers
but can’t you see that
I am empty.
I have loved you
and I always will.
