Betwixt words

I might never breathe again
That is
if I am to keep all my thoughts
to myself 
I might never see again
or speak again
and I certainly won’t love again 
without you giving me ear for just a little while
I want to scream three and a half inches from your nose
I love you, why can’t you hear me?!
and then watch in awe as your smile grows
to light up the stage you have recklessly thrown me onto
with your strong arms, perfect teeth and
weak ankles 
Before I can close my mouth
your tongue pulls my tongue
into itself and beyond 
the limitations of what is known
and you whisper between kisses

I cannot hear you, 

but I am listening
