My thoughts canít escape the prison of my teeth
So I paint pictures of what I want to say with tears
And hum songs with heavy sighs.

I spell out what I want to say with my eyes
Describe the desires I have with my fingertips
And punctuate the fears with my fists.

Can't Say
I'd be embarrassed to say to you how much I like this poem.

*scratches head*.... is that a good thing or bad thing?

A Good Thing
I meant it as a compliment - a big compliment. It's funny though, when I first read this piece it had an erotic impact upon me. Therefore, my discrete and clumsy comment.

Reading the poem tonight, it has more layers for me. For one, it's an exquisite picture of longing, seductively written.

I think I'm getting tongue-tied, so I will now defer to the first line of your poem.

Can't Say What I Want
"And hum songs with heavy sighs.", "And punctuate the fears with my fists." You say it better than I ever could, this feeling. Beautiful, truthful piece. Lost for words.

I just can't even say how much I liked this poem. It goes beyond words.. Thanks for posting.

For a moment there, I thought you were writing about me.

This is short and not a single word was meaningless. Sometimes, less is better. This says it all and then some.

can't say what i want
You have captured my mind and heart. I'm in love. Gomarsoap may be too embarrassed to say it, but I'm not. But I must warn you, I am a poetry love polygamist.

can't say what i want
Multitudes will glimpse your soul my lovely Queen of Prose and their passions oh so deep like sand beneath your feet.
