Tongue Tied

Rating: 5.0

I've been tongue tied before but never like this
Not when I'm staring at your lips thinking about a kiss
Feeling my heart rate increase w/ every glance at your eyes
I know we've had some bumpy rides
On this roller coaster called life
But we're two lily's together we thrive
Our petals, our veins, our roots
They all look beautiful on the window stoops
After the rain, the sun comes out to make us laugh
I want to keep those moments close, forever to have
Engraved on my heart so I'll never forget
The good times and the sad times that made our eyes wet
They are all precious, they're my glimmer of hope
Even if I was mute you know I'd always love you with the words I wrote
I'd write you endless poems till my fingers were numb
I'd write so many they'd all come out cheesy and dumb
But they'd make you smile, that pretty little smile
That'd make it all worth the while
I'm not a good talker, I'd probably stutter my 'I love you's'
Thank God I'm not an aspiring actor, all I'd get are 'Boo's'
I wish everyday for you to always be by my side
It's just hard to tell you cause loving you leaves me tongue tied

Great poem. I find the title ironic. This flows like some of the very best slam poetry I've ever read. A great work.
