Tongue Tied

How hard can it be

to put a few words together

to let you know

I will love you forever.

But every time I want to

my tongue gets tied

and I end up embarrassed

and feel the need

to run and hide.

You look at me in puzzlement

and must think it’s strange

yet you still turn up on

the next date we arrange.

Maybe you do have

strong feelings for me

and have the patience to wait

until my tongue breaks free.

You can tell by my eyes

what it is I want to say

and you know you will hear

those words someday.
