To Speak

A thousand ways I want to say
Upon my tongue the words at play
Declaring what is held inside
Watching as the words fly by
Spreading like ashes upon the wind
Settling upon your heated skin
My reality seeping into your veins
My thoughts, your cocaine

  3. Very, Very cool. I especially like the last verse. The first two verse are extremely well writen---they just roll of the tongue.

  9. The final three lines draw you closer and closer in, but the whole poem is so musical.
