A Slip Of The Tongue - Poem by Leslie Alexis
When the tongue slips, the heart speaks,
As this is when the heart leaks.
Free of the inhibitions of thoughts
words said reflect the heart’s
true desires: love, hate, disgrace.
When you 'accidentally' called his name,
I knew it was end of the game, so I
Took my belongings and stepped away.
It made no sense for me to stay.
My only regret,
Is that my tongue slipped too;
And what it said was 'I love you.'
