TITLE: Forget The Words

Forget the words
for words can sting or stumble,
cause confusion, lie.
Do not beguile me with your tongue,
a trap perhaps
to catch me by.

Show me your eyes,
for eyes reflect the soul of man,
passions bold laid bare
and I can read your heartís desire,
if it be me
and if you care.

The eyes of love
are like the oceanís raging depths,
echoing the sea,
where I can ride the crest of waves
to greater heights
of ecstasy.

Hold me, my love.
I long to press my beating heart
against your chest
and feel the matching rhythm of
your beating heart
within my breast.

You raise your brows
in question now as if you thought
my words were vain.
If trust is gone and I live on
where can I dwell
and still be sane.

Somehow I know
when love has flown in human form
I still can trust
my Jesus, He who knows me best,
and loves me still.
Forget the words.

Such lovely words...beautiful expression with a great last stanza.

Very nicely written & focused use of the topic. Avoiding the rhyme w/ your last word created an interesting jolt to underscore your point well.

I love the beautifully open-hearted nature of this piece. Your structure is very clear but it doesn't intrude on your message.
