Hush

There is such weight to words I cannot speak
Will not
Want not…. To want to
All innocence and eyes
You stole that smile
That
Weapon of choice
From someplace deep inside my chest
Where
Even my thoughts tremble
When those self conscious sideways glances devastate my core
And
For a minute
I can’t breathe
Waiting
For the next
Anything
Unmitigated stupefaction in your presence
Yet, silence
Heavy on my lips as a kiss
