Love

imageWhy is it that
The more abundant
Love is
The harder it is to
Say so?
The more we care,
The more we
Hide our hearts.
The more we care,
The better we get at
Drowning honest affections in
Scared blue water.

When we walk away
We hesitate, our feet
Caught by an invisible string
That urges us to say the
Words we fear might
Slip out from our lips.

But then the line snaps and

We keep walking,

Walking away from the truth we’re
Terrified to tell.
