To love a girl

Posted: November 14, 2012 in Love, poetry

It’s an impossible thing

to tell a boy

not to love a girl


to train his stuttering lips to speak

or still the ticking of his heart

when a dam breaks within him

and his blood rages like an untamed river


to say the least

to slow the beating of his heart

or hasten the quickness of his mind

when a smile steals across his face

in a dream and yet he is awake

when his legs refuse to obey command

and his feet go left instead of right

For he is completely unaware

when his eyes shine

and his breath is held captive

when light mirrors his joy

and dances on red rose petals

when speech divorces his lips

and his heart speaks a thousand words

which his thoughts long to say

but his mouth fails to echo

Pray, do not tell a boy

not to love a girl

For in that vein

it is impossible.


Love is a Language

A gentle tap

A soft smile

Misty eyes

A tender touch

A warm embrace

Hushed whispers

A long look

In silent nights

Calm demure

A steady heartbeat

Flushed cheeks

A content sigh

He didn’t have to speak

She just knew

He wanted to but

She understood

For love is a language

Far above words.
