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”.
