like a fool...

like a fool, i spout forth feelings.
my mouth doesn't listen to my mind
and takes matters into it's own hands
not caring if it's on the verge of ruining
something special
that had been moving along at a good clip.
mouth and mind not working together.
mind wants mouth to become still.
it cannot control it's senseless babbling
out of control.
mouth.
mouth
longing for your kiss.
mind.
mind
yearning to hear you reiterate mouth's words
mind's feelings.
mouth, mind frightening you away.
while heart stares paralyzedafter you.
heart.
heart
swelling at the thought of you.
heart.
heart
holding still seemingly not breathing while it awaits
your answer to mouth's freewheeling comments.
heart.
heart
frozen with anticipation.
mind.
mind
reeling with embarrassment.
mouth.
mouth
trembling waiting eagerly to be kissed.
swept up into a fairy tale mind.
mind
dancing lightly in your arms wearing tiny glass slippers.
heart.
heart
beating in synch with yours
your heart.
my heart.
heart
staring through plates of glass edged in a golden lace
at your heart wishing to break it free of barriers that
confine it
to meld together in it's own tale.
heart. mind. mouth.
working seperately
hoping together.
mouth.
mouth
hearing words that aren't the same as mind.
mind
blaming mouth for taking its most sacred thought and
revealing it to your mind mouth and most of all
heart.
heart
trapped,
guarded,
gilded
heart
dangling for my
mouth mind heart
to see and wish for.
teasing taunting
while your mouth and mind stand close and closed.
keeping trespassers at a safe distance.
my mouth mind heart
stand in awe
staring
wanting
longing
yearning
hoping
for a day when the guards turn their backs while
mouth mind heart
steal your
heart
away.
