Words Running through my Fingertips

I’ve always believed that I had words running through my fingertips

 

like water through a faucet

 

throughout my life,

I’ve filled journal after journal

 

and the moment that you stepped into my life

I became a blank page

 

one that I could not seem to fill

 

you rendered me speechless

you disarmed me

 

unable to reload my ammo

 

my words morphed into emotions that I could no longer grasp

 

Feelings that I could no longer condense into something tangible

 

Thoughts that I could no longer sift through and create something as

Little as a poem

 

mere words could not project the tightness I feel within my chest

 

There is no joining of any letters that I could find to make you understand the way in which a thought of you removes all oxygen from my lungs

 

and the action of breathing suddenly feels labored.

 

How can I put into words

that being near you consumes me

 

pumps my body full of adrenaline

and my fingers tremble

 

How can i explain

that being with you transforms my legs

into nothing more than the the twigs of a seedling

 

My body weak

My senses enhanced

 

How do I tell you

that the thought of your smile warms my heart as I physically feel it swelling

 

Overwhelmed by the love and compassion you show me

 

Overflowing with the patience and care you constantly flow in my direction

 

You love me when I lose the strength to love myself

 

You have shown me what love really is

You have shown me what it feels like to be loved

You have shown me what it looks like to stare into the eyes of someone who is in love

 

You are my soulmate

You are my other half

You are the only one I see beside me

My partner in crime

My forever dance partner

 

You are my one and only
