Courage to speak up
why is silence more easy?
it may be a quiet surrender,
but it will haunt me always.
I wanted to tell you, honestly
somewhere, everywhere within me,
are the classic notions of love.
if only I could tell you,
show you my deepest longing,
perhaps you could respond in kind,
how you are blowing my mind.
a little voice keeps calling,
“don't be so bloody appalling”.
I fight to speak up,
utter the proclamations of desire,
that is here, igniting my fire.
oh for courage to say,
my sweet innocent, delicious girl,
your light has blown me away..!
