When She Speaks

Her voice is a grand symphony,
my heart an enthusiast for classical music.
When she speaks I’m lost inside
the lovely intricacies of her flowing words.

More Importantly

Which came first,
the chicken or the egg?
And, more importantly,
the god or the man?

My mind is a wide barrier
I’ve yet to break into parts,
still allowing over-thinking
to dictate precisely what my
impressionable heart desires.

Enough for Now

A neglected mug of cold coffee
sits beside the notebook
I’ve been scribbling in for hours,

a futile attempt to find a way
to describe how much you mean to me
through a poem from the heart,

for I could easily spend the rest of my life
composing lines dedicated to you,
but it would never be sufficient because

and can only be partially understood by man.

The only thing I possess is time,
and it’s slowly starting to run about.
The more I worry, the more I cry,

with shoulders slumped
and nervous feet
rocking back and forth,
I can’t come to a conclusion about
which fate would be worse,

surrendering to the unhappiness
behind me
that’s been waiting to steal
my last ounce of sanity,

or giving in to the voices that tell me
I’ll never be good enough
and taking one cowardly,
courageous plunge
into the welcoming arms
of the unholy waters below.
