My problem is:
and my hands just can’t keep up.
In each instant a breath
In each breath two words
and so on into infinity.
And in infinity a silence,
the words I will not say.
“I am so happy with you”
“Never speak to me again”
“Do not fall in love”
“Please just stay one more day”
I hope you can feel this in my fingertips
and the soft kisses along your shoulder.
I hope you know:
I fear the words I will not say.
