Words Meant

Words Meant


The pulsing, pounding
comes from within –
Weakened knees
start caving in –
Shuddering shivers,
nerves run thin –
Goosebumps on
every part of my skin –

And all because,
because of you –
and the qualities
possessed by few –
Every day is
something new –
A friend you were,
Friendship grew –

My smile’s curve
reaches the hollow of me –
Open eyes
absorb what I see –
Tingling toe top
your arm touching me –
Airy and light I am
Unconsciously –

And all because,
because of you –
Standing at your side
I like the view –
Laughing sincerely,
And this holds true –
I’d rather not
yet bid adieu –

And all because,
because of you –
I magnify not
My feelings’ debut –
A hope that there’s promise,
A hope for value –
That beautification
is lacking virtue –

For you are real
Without embellishment –
Thus my words for you
Lack words unmeant –
Truth enjoys power,
And you are most true –
So these honest, unsweetened words
I give to you.
