Attached

Moving through the various body motions

Of an engagement, engrossed in emotions

Contemplating the best gesture to utilize

As I try to convey what I cannot say.

 

As the words try to free themselves

From the inner chasm of my being

Forcing out a mere whisper

As I try to convey what it is that I feel.

 

Fearing the worst that may come

That I may drive away my interest

Forcing them out of my embrace

As they try to make sense of my phrase.

 

I could never utter such words

With any brevity, much less confidence

Failing to provide a proper response

To fulfill the will of my partner’s promise.

 

The anxiety overwhelms my mouth

Rendering my body silent

As I could not attach myself to them

And just mutter the word “yes”.
