Words I Could’ve Said

 

I look at you

And I lose my voice.

But when I think of you later,

The words I wanted to say

Burst through the floodgates

And fill my mind.

 

I steel myself

And prepare to tell you

How I truly feel.

But when I look into your eyes,

The flood becomes a trickle

And it suddenly stops.

 

I freeze at first,

And then I smile,

Cursing myself on the inside.

But you’ll never find out,

Because I’ll hold it all in,

And I’ll never let it show.
