Can A Word Ever Say

Can a metaphor ever depict
Can a word ever say
Can my eyes ever reflect
Can my body ever dance to you
how much you mean to me

they all fail separately
but it’s the sum total
It’s a world of metaphors
It’s a symphony of poetry
my eyes always looking at you
my body sacredly devoted
to yours
in an endless dance

it is through these many ways
in which my heart speaks
as it even speaks its love for you
through silence,

that you will know
