If I could tell you

If I could tell you

in Hawaii(I can dream, right?)

If I could speak
If I could speak to you about it
I would
I would speak until the words are used up
And the air between us is filled with words
And phrases
And sentences

If I could tell you
I would
I would tell you the way I would on paper
Words like ink dripping off my lips
I would let the words free from the cage in my throat
Where they are kept

But when I open my mouth to speak
The air is deafened with silence
Filled with emptiness
It seems I can't find the key to my words
They die on my tongue
Or maybe they've escaped
Down to my finger tips
Bleeding out into the paper
And the keyboard

Like my own blood they leave
They are dark and treacherous
Unforgiving as they leap away from me
And then I can disown them
Pretend they aren't mine
Let them burn with the embers where I through them
Let them disappear to the internettal emptiness

There are words ready in my mind
But they just disappear when I call them
Would you mind if I never made eye contact as we spoke?
Then I might be able to whisper as phrase or two
Forgetting you are there to listen

I think I am forgetting the sound of my voice
The way it sounds when I hold back tears
I only remember the bright, cheery facade I play with
A party trick that distracts the audience
That distracts from the magician

Just know that I would
I would if I could force the syllables from my mouth
Find a way to cast them into the abyss
I would if I could
But I can't

Do you know what Angelica said, when she read what you'd done? She said: "You've married and Icarus. He's flown to close to the sun."
