if i could talk


  • Passion
  • ,
  • Love

    if i could talk

    i will give you mouthfuls
    of colorful ribbons
    lax and fluid
    they will roll from my tongue
    i will not breathe
    i will bare my insides
    in violent rhyme
    and you will see
    my intelligent imperfections
    whispers will define my abandoned silence
    and i will fill your dark corners
    with a fervid restlessness
    i will show you fire and light
    bursting with ardent possibilities
    as we fight for our release-
    as remnants of fine lines and bitter fingerprints
    cloud our minds
    we fight and we fight and we fight
    because we don't believe that love is free-

    words fall slowly from our scarred mouths
    we gasp for a breath of righteousness
    only to choke on a lonely fear
    stemmed from their selfish neglect and greed

    we want to believe in fairy tales but how can we?
    when our hands are empty and they try to take our dreams
    and we fall short of everything that seems
    to make any sense

    but i can show you what love is
    and i will convince you that these fairy tales are not

    but you do speak and in a tone of awe,for your words have melted the ice and stream of liquid flow slowly in time,,a pen and paper is just that,until you speak,,vibe and walk good..



    thank you! :)
