Beyond Expression

Sing? I cannot sing
no words through these lips come out
I want to sing
I want to voice
the feelings I have within
But words don’t rise
why don’t they rise
when I am with you?

When you are near
the trouble’s more
the heart-beat stops
my breath suspends
and what I feel is never said
For such are the tremors inside
no words can ever tell –
even when you are around me
I simply cannot tell

A series of Past tense – poems from 1972 – 1986
