~How can I tell you what I feel for you~


How can I tell you what I feel for you?
When I think of you my feelings twist inside
As if someone's fist reached in and grabbed a few,
and turned and turned them tight and tangled. I've tried
Somehow to say: You're the sun in my sky,
The wind that takes me where I want to go,
The sweet incense that makes me feel so high
That loving you seems all I need to know.
But it all sticks in my throat! It sounds too cute,
empty as a wrinkled paper bag.
You won't believe it! Better I stay mute
than offer you clichés that make you gag.
And yet I wish to tell you of my love,
If only love its own locks would remove

    Tell him with a letter.
    Tell him with a song.
    Tell him with a poem.
    Tell him with a touch.
    Tell him with a smile
    Tell him with a kiss.
    Tell him with a call.
    Tell him with a email.
    Tell him with a friend
    Tell him with your eyes.
    Just let the man know befor you die.
    don't be scared to let him know odds are he feels the same inside
    and if not you can move on and find that right guy.
    thank you for the poem
    have a goodnight (Report) Reply

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf

Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
